Trucking accidents happen on a daily basis and thousands of large accidents happen each year. Many times, these accidents are preventable caused by negligence or wrongdoing. In these cases, one or more parties may be held legally responsible for any injuries that result from the accident. Trucking companies, in an attempt to avoid liability, may use a number of different tactics to deny a valid claim.
