Who Can Be Held Responsible for a Trucking Accident?

If you were injured in a truck accident, it is likely the truck driver and/or trucking company can be held responsible. In some situations, others can also be held responsible, such as maintenance workers or auto part manufacturers if there was a problem with a defective part or lack of maintenance.

Truck drivers are required to follow regulations that include Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, hazardous materials regulations, hours-of-service regulations, state safety, licensing and insurance requirements and employee hiring, supervision and truck maintenance requirements. If any of these rules were violated, either the trucking company or driver can be liable for your injuries.

Diligently Preparing Each Case

With so many parties potentially involved - such as the driver, truck owner, maintenance company and truck manufacturer - you need a hard-hitting attorney to represent your rights as you go up against a truck driver's insurance company and their team of intimidating lawyers. As an experienced litigator and veteran lawyer, I have experience going up against large firms and insurance carriers. Each case is prepared diligently and with the utmost attention to detail in order to maximize your results.

Preparing a truck accident case can involve:

  • Investigating any prior incidents involving the trucking company and driver
  • Looking through maintenance log books
  • Scrutinizing hiring practices and training of drivers
  • Obtaining statements from witnesses
  • Examining physical evidence and the damage to the vehicles with the help of reconstruction experts
