When a car or other vehicle rear ends a semi-trailer, the accident should be thoroughly investigated to determine if the semitrailer driver was at fault. Questions that need answers include the following:

  1. Was the semi driver traveling at a safe speed?
  2. Was he too tired to drive safely?
  3. Was he distracted?
  4. Did the truck and trailer have all required safety features and were they functional?
  5. Were there any violations of state or federal law related to the semitrailer, its driver or the trucking company?

Our law firm has won lawsuits for drivers who ran into semi trucks that were stopped. In one recent case, our investigation found that the truck driver was on his cell phone.

It can take some digging to determine what really happened, and it may be necessary to hire accident reconstruction specialists to build a winning case.
