Determining Liability In Truck Accidents

Trucking accidents are more complex than car accidents. Liability can stem from the truck driver, the trucking company and the company who owns the trailer being transported. Any and all of these parties may be named in a lawsuit.

Determining liability can be difficult. We diligently prepare your case by reviewing all evidence and examining all factors that may have contributed to the crash. This includes having a clear understanding of trucking industry standards and the ways each party could have contributed to the crash. Contributing factors may include:

  • Truck drivers working over their hours of service requirements, i.e. driving too many hours without taking a break
  • Alcohol or drug use by truck drivers
  • Inadequate training for truck drivers
  • Improper maintenance of cab of truck i.e. not replacing the brakes
  • Improper maintenance or loading of the trailer i.e. improper weight balance of the trailer making it more difficult to control

Unsafe drivers or unsafe vehicles can lead to disastrous outcomes on the road. Truck drivers and companies are responsible for safely operating their vehicles. When they fail to follow the rules, they can be held accountable. We will fight to make sure of that.
