Who Is Liable for Your Injuries After a Truck Accident?
There are a number of different factors that need to be considered when determining fault in a truck accident case. Depending on the specifics of your accident, one or more of the following parties could be to blame:
- The driver: There are strict rules and regulations that govern how far a driver can drive in a given period of time, the amount of rest required for each leg of a trip, and logging information. If a driver did not adhere to these laws, or if they were operating recklessly or under the influence, they could be at-fault.
- The leasing company: Some drivers lease their vehicles from larger companies. These companies are required to maintain the vehicles and ensure that they are in proper running condition. If the truck was not maintained per required schedules, a major failure could have led to the accident.
- The city or county where the accident took place: Speed limits that are too fast, construction zones that are not properly marked, and poor road conditions can lead to large accidents. If the city or county did not maintain the road, they may be held liable for an accident.
- The manufacturer of a faulty product: If there was a brake failure, steering failure, or other part that failed to operate properly, the manufacturer of the product could be held responsible.
- The loader: Large trucks often carry heavy loads that are required to be properly placed and restrained to avoid slipping, moving, or coming free during transit. Improperly loaded goods can lead to jackknifing, falls, and other serious accidents.
