Cars and trucks are vastly different. You already know this. But did you know that due to their sheer size and weight, tractor-trailer collisions often come with debilitating, even deadly, consequences? Similarly, handling a tractor-trailer case is not the same as handling a car accident case. Tractor-trailer trucks, motor carriers, and their drivers are subject to a wide range of government rules and regulations.
It is imperative that you retain an attorney to quickly begin the investigative process if you’ve been injured by a tractor-trailer. Evidence must be preserved, and the correct experts retained in order to protect your claim. Attorney Dexter Benoit, the founder of Benoit Law Firm, PLLC, brings nearly two decades of experience to each trucking accidents case. If you’ve been injured due to a truck driver’s negligence, we will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.

Who is Responsible for a Truck Accident?
When a trucking accident occurs, the question of who is responsible goes beyond merely the truck driver. Many players may be involved, including the company who owns the truck and the driver’s employer.
The people and entities who could be held responsible for a trucking accident include:
- The truck driver
- The owner of the truck
- The individual or company who leased the truck from the owner
- The manufacturer of the truck, tires, mirrors, or other components that could have contributed to the cause or severity of the crash
- The shipper or loader of the truck's cargo if improper loading was a cause of the crash
