Who Could Be Held Liable for a Truck Accident?
Our Truck Accident Attorneys Can Stand Up For You
If you or someone you love was injured in a truck accident, you may wonder who should be responsible for paying your insurance claim. Determining liability, or legal responsibility, is one of the most important parts of a trucking accident claim. It is necessary to determine who caused the accident so you can pursue the compensation you need to begin rebuilding your life.
In our mission to stand up for the injured, our truck accident attorneys at Crumley Roberts are committed to determining cause and liability so we can pursue fair compensation. We use in-house investigators, expert witnesses, and other professionals to determine what caused a collision so we can see what party or parties may be held accountable.
If you were involved in a truck accident, the following parties may be liable:
The driver or operator of the truck
The owner of the truck
The company or person that leased the truck from the owner
The trucking company
The manufacturer of the truck or its parts
The shipping or loading company that put the cargo on the truck
People who share the road with large trucks could also be responsible, such as drivers, motorcyclists, pedestrians, or cyclists. In some cases, government entities or contractors that are responsible for road maintenance may be held liable if a dangerous or defective road caused the truck accident.
