Who has the liability in truck accident?

While it may seem pretty straightforward to you who is liable for the injuries you have sustained, it is important to know that there are actually numerous parties that could be held responsible for an accident. When you work with our firm, we can thoroughly review your case and determine who is at fault and hold them liable for their actions. Each commercial trucking case is different, but listed below are the parties most commonly responsible:

The Driver.

In most commercial trucking accident cases, human error is to blame. There are various laws in place that dictate what a driver can and cannot do while operating a vehicle, and upon inspection of the driver’s log or surveillance, it may be determined that the driver is at fault.

The Manufacturer.

If it is determined that a part of the truck or related equipment failed and thus resulted in a major incident, the manufacturer of the part could be to blame. Common part failures include brakes, steering systems, hitches, hydraulics, and tires.

The Loader.

Flatbed trucks or any trucks that are shipping goods in large amounts need to be properly secured prior to shipment. Failure on behalf of the loader to properly secure a load may spell disaster. Any movement during shipment can cause serious accidents.
