Q: If a big truck had an accident which caused another accident are they liable for damages
Big truck was being pulled out of ditch which had traffic stopped with no warnings
A: It is difficult to tell based on these facts alone. There has to be fault, that is, someone did they something they shouldn't or failed to do something they should have.
Andrew Charles Burrell agrees with this answer
A: Your question is not a simple one to answer. It is possible depending on the full facts of the accident that the trucking company could be found liable, but it also depends on the facts of your accident. At this point, I would advise you to contact an attorney and discuss what options you have in regards to your claim.
