Cabell-area truck accident results in lawsuit brought by family


A truck company is facing a lawsuit after a Cabell-area truck accident resulted in injuries. A husband, wife and their child have brought the lawsuit, claiming that the trucking company employee caused the accident. The family asserts that it was travelling south and approaching an intersection when the truck driver failed to stop and struck the vehicle the family was in. The employee was operating a log truck for the trucking company and the time of the accident and, it appears, failed to apply the brakes on the truck at the intersection.

The truck driver struck several cars and the family that has brought lawsuit asserting it suffered injuries in the multi-vehicle accident caused by the truck driver's negligence. As a result, the family is seeking damages. When a truck collision results from the negligence of a truck driver, injured victims may be able to receive damages including medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering damages.

In addition to the liability a negligent truck driver, such as an inattentive truck driver, unqualified truck driver or truck driver who is speeding, may be responsible for, the truck company that employed the driver may also be liable to injured victims for compensation of damages suffered. Depending on the nature of the relationship between the truck company and the truck driver, and the nature of the activities of the truck driver at the time of the accident, the trucking company may also be liable for the serious injuries and damages the victims suffered.

Victims can suffer serious injuries and extensive harm in the blink of an eye when involved in a truck accident the victims did not cause. A trained personal injury attorney can help victims evaluate the damages victims have suffered, and will suffer, and determine if a claim for damages is warranted.
