Insurance and Injury Compensation

Semi-truck accidents and 18-wheeler accidents are covered by insurance policies, and companies as well as the trucker can be held liable for injuries victims suffer as a result of an 18-wheeler accident. They are liable whether the accident was due to negligence as a result of driver fatigue from driving too many hours in a day, they can even be liable if the accident is a result of a blow out on a truck's wheels.

Accidents are often caused due to poor maintenance and upkeep of the truck, failure to take care of something as simple as a truck’s tire pressure can cause devastating consequences. Truck drivers are required to keep logs; logs of vehicle maintenance, logs on hours driven each day as well as miles driven and routes taken. They are required to maintain their vehicles and failure to do so can make the liable.

Although many truck drivers own their own trucks, many drive for a company. But whether the driver works for himself or a company there can be a shared liability when a trucking accident occurs; perhaps the trucker was on the phone with the dispatcher. This would place liability on both parties. You may wonder how to prove this. There is technology available to help determine what might have played a part in causing the accident.
