If your accident was caused by negligence, you deserve financial compensation, but recovering compensation can be complicated. There may be many parties involved – these include the driver, the trucking company, the owner of the cargo, the company that loaded the cargo and the manufacturer of any defective parts. Each may have a different insurance company and a different lawyer.

Pajcic & Pajcic holds negligent parties accountable
A negligent driver may have caused your tractor-trailer accident. For example, the driver may have been speeding or operating recklessly. The driver may have been texting, using a GPS or adjusting a dashboard control. Or the driver may have been fatigued and was falling asleep at the wheel at the time of the crash.
Trucking companies can also be negligent. It is their responsibility to check the background of their drivers and ensure that they receive proper training. It is their responsibility to ensure that the trucks in their fleet are properly maintained and repaired. They must also give their drivers realistic schedules and ensure that all Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations are followed.
