A CR England truck accident is responsible for the severe injuries and untimely death of a North Carolina woman, according to a recently filed lawsuit.
The defendant named in the CR England truck accident lawsuit owned the semi-truck that was ultimately involved in the accident and was operating it in the course of his employment with CR England.
According to the CR England truck accident lawsuit, the female plaintiff was traveling south on Highway 301 immediately before the incident occurred. The defendant driver was also operating his tractor trailer going south on Highway 301.
The lawsuit states that the defendant was traveling with excessive speed that caused him to lose control of the tractor trailer unit and hit the plaintiff’s vehicle, ultimately causing the CR England truck accident.
The results of the accident were catastrophic, according to the lawsuit. The plaintiff suffered severe personal injuries and died at the scene of the accident due to injuries allegedly associated with the accident itself.
The lawsuit argues that the driver as well as the employer company, CR England, is responsible for the severe personal injuries and untimely death of the accident victim.
Liability in Trucking Accidents
Anytime that a truck driver negligently operates a heavy commercial vehicle such as a tractor trailer, the injuries associated with the resulting accident can be severe. When the truck driver is responsible due to excessive speed, aggressive driving, breaking relevant road laws, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or driving distracted at the time of the accident, the driver as well as the company through which he or she is employed may be held responsible in a lawsuit.
Since these cases can be extremely complex and will often lead to the trucking company and trucker’s insurance carrier being dispatched to the scene immediately, accurate information regarding the accident should be captured right away by the victim. Severe injuries, however, might prevent a victim from taking photos or gathering contact information for witnesses.
As a result of this, proper investigation of the accident scene or use of accident reconstruction can help explain what happened and may enable the victim to recover full and fair compensation. Trucking accidents are typically much more complex than traditional vehicle wrecks because of the many parties potentially liable as well as the common injuries for accident victims.
Prompt and comprehensive investigation is just one tool to identify how the victim’s life has been changed and what is required. A truck accident may represent lifelong disabilities and injuries for the victim, making a lawsuit imperative in order to pay for treatments..
