Investigation of San Francisco Semi-Truck Accident
The investigation of the San Francisco semi-truck accident is ongoing.
At this time, investigators have not released information on the specifics

an illegal turn in advance of the accident. As of this time, there has
been no information released as to whether there were other factors contributing
to the accident.

Responsibility for San Francisco Semi-Truck Accident
Because it does appear that the San Francisco semi-truck driver made an
illegal turn that resulted in the accident, the truck operator is likely
to be determined a responsible party. The reality is that responsibility
for the accident and the injuries are not likely to end with the truck driver.
The trucking company certainly is a potentially responsible party. This
is because of a legal doctrine called agency. The legal doctrine of agency
holds an employer -- like a trucking company -- responsible for the conduct
of an employee during the course of employment -- like a big rig driver.
