An investigation to this accident will prove essential due to the fact that a commercial truck wrongfully killed two women. The driver of the semi-truck that caused the accident, and the trucking company, may be liable for any damages brought forth upon motorists.

The elements of liability, damages, and the ability to pay are critical in determining the value of a case or claim.
