Who Is Responsible for Your Truck Accident?

Following the devastation of a truck accident, it's easy for injury victims to jump to the most obvious conclusion: it was the driver's fault. Many times, this assumption isn't wrong. There are many ways in which truck driver error and negligence can contribute to a dangerous accident.

However, commercial trucking isn't exactly like the same kind of travel that consumers take part in on the road. Instead, commercial trucking is vigorously regulated and relies on the adherence to an array of different safety standards. The driver is responsible for meeting and maintaining many of these standards—but not all of them.

Possible negligent parties in a trucking accident claim can include:

  • The truck driver
  • The company who loaded the truck cargo
  • The owner of the truck or trailer
  • The maker of the truck or trailer
  • The party who leased the truck or trailer

"Who do I file my claim against?"

If you have been hurt in a trucking accident, it can be frustrating to be unsure of who is responsible for your injuries. However, there will be an investigation by officials into the cause of the accident and your counsel, as well, should launch its own inquiry into the accident to identify just precisely what went wrong.
