Determining Liability After an Accident
Trucking companies are responsible for ensuring that their drivers are
well-trained, competent, and follow all necessary safety guidelines. Failure
to do so can result in a serious accident. In such cases, our truck accident
litigation lawyers are here to help. We use our experience, legal resources,
and knowledge to represent victims injured in a truck accident through
no fault of their own.
Any number of parties could be responsible for the trucking accident that
left you injured. An attorney can investigate your case to help determine
who should be held liable. Common liable parties include:
- Truck driver
- Trucking company
- Owner of the truck or trailer
- Shipper or loader of the truck’s cargo
- Owner of the leasing company that lent the truck out
- Manufacturer of the truck or manufacturer of the trucking parts
Proving fault can be difficult, especially when you’re up against
a large trucking company. Insurance providers of these companies will
do everything in their power to avoid paying victims after an accident,
which is why you’ll need an experienced, proven lawyer fighting
on your behalf.
