Liability in drunk driving trucking accidents
In accidents involving truck drivers who are driving under the influence (OUI), the liability may extend beyond the truck driver. In investigating a serious truck collision involving drinking and driving, an experienced attorney may find that the driver's employer also was negligent. The trucking company may have been aware that the driver was drinking or failed to properly train or supervise the driver. In such cases, you may be able to pursue a negligent entrustment of vehicle lawsuit.
Truck accidents involving drunk driving can lead to complex personal injury cases. Insurance companies for the liable parties may try to settle the case quickly or deny a claim outright. If you or a loved one was injured in a semi-truck drunk driving collision, it will be wise to have an aggressive lawyer to protect your interests.
A drunk driving 18-wheeler accident typically involves serious injuries, such as spinal injuries, traumatic brain injuries or even fatal injuries that may lead to a wrongful death lawsuit.
