Fluvanna Personal Injury Lawyer Discusses Deadly Tractor Trailer Accident. A recent tractor trailer truck accident in Fluvanna county, Virginia left one man dead and his wife seriously injured. The accident happened on Route 15 and involved a tractor trailer truck. The driver of the passenger car was traveling north on Route 15 in Fluvanna county when he slowed to make a left turn. The tractor trailer truck was behind the car and did not slow down enough. As a result, the truck struck the passenger car in the driver's side, killing the driver. The truck diver was charged with reckless driving. Interestingly, the tractor trailer was not loaded at the time of the accident, which might account for the speed of the tractor trailer and the failure of the the truck driver to stop before causing the accident. Route 15 in Fluvanna county is for the most part a 2 lane highway and it can be treacherous if posted speed limits are not obeyed or if a driver follows too closely. The Virginia State Police Motor Carrier Safety Team and Accident Reconstruction Team arrived at the scene of the accident to assist with the investigation. As part of our personal injury law practice, it is sometimes necessary to have an expert assist in determining the cause of a car accident. Tractor trailer accidents can be particularly challenging. One of the experts with whom I have worked in serious truck accident cases is the former head of the Virginia Accident Reconstruction Team. His expertise in the area of car and truck accidents has been very helpful in proving fault where the defendant driver denies responsibility for causing the car crash. Our personal injury law practice knows when experts are needed to prove the case and we get the expert to the scene as soon as possible to make sure that the investigation is timely and that physical evidence,such as skid marks, does not disappear.

  1. Personal injury lawyers are very helpful. If you met an accident and want to claim for compensation, these people can guide you how you can do so.

    According to Health And Safety Training Peterborough 60% of the time people try to claim for the accident compensation on their own, get nothing and lose the case.
