Fatal crash on I-75 caused by overturned semi

In the early morning hours of December 19, a semi-truck overturned on Interstate 75 in Lexington causing all southbound lanes of traffic to come to a standstill. The reason for the overturn has not yet been released. During the snare, the driver of a Ford Mustang crashed into another semi-truck that was stalled in traffic. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The cause of that crash is also still under investigation.

Highway fatalities are, unfortunately, common on I-75 and many times involve semi-trucks. In 2016, it was rated the fifth deadliest highway in the country, according to a financial information website.

If you have lost someone you love to an accident involving a semi-truck or tractor trailer, consulting with an experienced attorney can offer guidance on how to move forward. He or she can determine the types of compensation you may be awarded by a court in a wrongful death lawsuit, or otherwise. In trucking accidents, the cause will always determine where liability lies. For instance, in an accident in which a truck driver was found to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, he may be held solely liable. In the alternative, if the accident was caused by an issue with the truck itself, the trucking company who employed the driver may be held liable. There are numerous scenarios from which compensation may be awarded in trucking accidents, and often come in substantial amounts.

Contact us today to discuss your eligibility for compensation if you, or a loved one, have been involved in a trucking accident.
