Most people consider rear-end car accidents to be minor. Often, these collisions occur in bumper-to-bumper traffic, in a parking lot, or in other situations when cars are moving at low speeds. When rear-end car accidents occur at high speeds, they can result in severe injuries and are sometimes fatal.
An investigation to this accident will prove essential due to the fact that a commercial truck put multiple driver’s lives at risk. The driver of the semi-truck that caused the accident, and the trucking company, may be liable for any damages brought forth upon the motorist.
The elements of liability, damages, and the ability to pay are critical in determining the value of a case or claim. Without all three elements, a case has little to no value given the nature of our legal system.
