Determining Liability in Trucking Accidents
Truck accidents are often the result of negligence, either by the driver, the trucking company, or the truck manufacturer. Often, liability falls on the trucking company, but it’s not always that simple.
Parties that could be held liable for your injuries include:
- The driver
- The owner of the truck
- The company who hired the driver
- The truck manufacturer
- The truck’s leasing company
Determining who may ultimately be responsible for your accident is essential and requires experience, skill, and access to experts to analyze all the evidence. It’s not just about establishing liability; you will also need to be able to prove that negligence played a role in the incident.
This could include truck driver fatigue, poor truck maintenance, overloaded or unsecured freight, trucker inexperience, trucker error, defective components, or failing to maintain and inspect the vehicle. We are not afraid to do the work required to undertake a detailed investigation and identify all the parties potentially liable in your case.
