Trucking Accidents

Large-sized commercial vehicles, such as tractor-trailers, and dump trucks, also cause traffic accidents, due to ignoring surroundings, truck driver fatigue, excessive speeding, etc.

Accidents caused by such vehicles tend to be serious and devastating due to the size and weight of those vehicles.

The victims of trucking accidents can demand compensation against the assailant for damages caused by the accidents, such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, disabilities and damage to, or destruction of, properties, under the Article 709 of Japanese Civil Code.

The victims of such accidents can also demand compensation from the assailant's employers, under the Article 715 of Japanese Civil Code and Article 3 of Automobile Liability Security Act.
