Semi Accident Attorney

When a semi accident occurs, determining liability is important, as most semi accidents result in major damages and injuries, including death. As such, the short and long -term costs can be extremely high. In addition, it can be difficult to determine liability, as many factors can contribute to semi accidents. This is why it is wise to consult semi accident attorneys for anyone involved in a semi accident. Semis have large blind spots, handle extremely poorly in emergencies, and can have a multitude of mechanical problems go array, making them very dangerous. When semis have mechanical issues that cause accidents, often third parties, such as the truck operators and vehicle and equipment manufacturers, become liable. Of course, driver error is still the major factor behind these crashes. Speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol and driver fatigue is the most common among those.
