Early this morning, a serious truck crash involving seven tractor trailers shut down part of the Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Though all the details of the crash are still unknown to the public, there were 5 people injured in the accident. Leaking diesel fuel was involved in the accident, so Hazmat crews were called to the scene of the accident. A detour was put in effect due to the nature of the accident and how many trucks were involved.
Just as with the truck crash involving seven tractor trailers, it is apparent that somebody’s negligence or multiple negligent drivers set off the accident in a way that led to a pile up or multiple drivers losing control. These cases can be somewhat complicated, because if there are multiple parties involved, how do you turn back time to pin the accident down on just one party? This can create difficult concerns.
In order to establish who is liable in a case, however, you must be able to establish how the accident occurred and who set off the entire pile-up. It is imperative to be able to name all of the parties liable in the court documents at the time the lawsuit is filed. Once you have taken a closer look at the accident based on certain elements, including what each driver was doing at the time of the accident, you can apply negligence and file a claim for compensation.
Injuries stemmed from this accident, like many other truck accidents. Trucks are much larger than any other vehicle on the roadways, which is why it is almost impossible to walk away from an accident without some type of injury.
