Who Can Be Liable in a Truck Accident?

Truck accidents can be incredibly complex because they usually involve multiple parties that cross state lines. When you have multiple parties, you could be dealing with multiple insurance companies are well, adding confusion to the claims process.

One or more of the following parties can be held liable:

  • Truck driver - If the truck driver was negligent in operating the vehicle (such as drinking and driving, speeding, texting, etc.)
  • Truck company - If the trucking company was negligent in hiring and training drivers, as well as poorly maintaining their vehicles, the liability can fall on the owner of the trucks.
  • Truck manufacturer - If defective brakes, tires, or other trucking equipment is defective, the truck manufacturer can be held liable for the accident.
  • Shipper or loader - The shipping/loading company can be liable if the accident was caused by unsecured cargo, overloading, and other unsafe loading practices.

Holding Negligent Parties Liable for Legal Violations

The trucking industry is highly regulated by the federal government. If truck drivers and trucking companies fail to follow federal guidelines for hiring, operating, and loading vehicles, they may be held liable for any resulting accidents. We believe that after a truck accident, you deserve real results and fair compensation to cover your financial and emotional suffering. We work hard for our clients to ensure they get the outcome they deserve.

Tractor-trailer and other large truck drivers are required to maintain specific records, including driving logs and weigh-ins. The trucking companies that hire them must also follow strict hiring practices and regularly maintain the trucks, among other regulations. At Fogelman & Von Flatern, we understand exactly which evidence to look for in order to prove your case and obtain a successful recovery.

We believe that the responsible party should be held accountable for their actions, and that the injured should receive compensation for their suffering and injuries. Let us help you file an effective accident claim during this time - let us handle your truck accident case.
