Who Is Liable in Truck Accidents?

Truck accident claims are very different from car accident claims. The trucking industry is highly regulated by the federal government, which has established strict standards for trucking companies, drivers, and third parties. Any party that violates trucking regulations can be held liable for any injuries that occur.

Truck accident liability can include one or more of the following parties:

  • Trucking company for negligent hiring, unrealistic working hours, overscheduling drivers, etc.
  • Cargo companies for overloading cargo or improperly loading cargo that violates federal standards.
  • Truck part manufacturers for defectively designed or manufactured parts that directly contributed to the accident.
  • Truck driver for speeding, fatigued driving, reckless driving, driving under the influence, and other unsafe driving habits.

Our law firm has the resources and experience to investigate, negotiate, and litigate any truck accident claim. We can work with a team of trusted accident reconstruction specialists to identify and prove evidence of liability.
