Understanding Liability in Truck Accident Cases
Identifying what party is liable in a truck accident case can be challenging. There are situations where more than one party has liability.
Besides the driver, other parties responsible for the incident could be held liable.
Some of the parties you may be able to recover compensation from include the following:
- Truck driver
- Employer of the truck driver
- Company that leased or owned the trailer or truck
- Cargo-loading company
- Manufacturer of the trailer or truck
Because many factors can contribute to truck accidents, these cases are often challenging and complex. Also, those in the trucking industry typically have big-name insurance companies and lawyers working to reduce their liability in these situations. Because of this (and many other reasons), you need an aggressive and experienced truck accident attorney to help with your case.
