Less than one-third of all accidents involving passenger vehicles result in serious injury. But accidents that involve large commercial vehicles, like 18-wheelers, are quite another story. Truck accidents can be deadly, and they can also be difficult to handle alone. Crumley Roberts is here to help.
Determining the at-fault party in a truck accident claim can be tough. The truck driver isn't the only party who can be responsible; often the company that owns the vehicle can also be held accountable if they fail to properly maintain the truck. The company that loaded the truck can also be held responsible if they fail to follow proper procedures when loading. In fact, shifting weight is a common cause of truck accidents. Finally, if a truck driver is representing a business or other organization, that business may share responsibility if their policies and procedures contributed to the safety problems that caused the accident.
Truck owners and operators are held to strict regulations by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. When they violate these regulations, they can be held liable for the accident. Crumley Roberts knows Federal regulations and understanding these requirements is just part of how we help our clients who have been involved in truck accidents. If you've been in an accident with a truck or other commercial vehicle, call Crumley Roberts. We'll stand up for you!
