Who can be Held Liable in a Truck Accident?
Determining who is at fault in a truck accident can be complex. There are many different parties with various responsibilities in the operation, maintenance and day-to-day functions of tractor-trailers. After a truck accident, possible liable parties include:
- Truck driver
- Trucking company
- Manufacturer of truck parts
- Maintenance companies
- Truck owner
If any of these parties act negligently, they can be responsible for causing a cataclysmic accident. In personal injury law, negligence is failure to act with the care that a reasonable person would exercise in a similar situation.
If a negligent party causes a truck accident in which you are injured, you may be entitled to compensation to pay for your injury-related expenses, including medical bills and lost wages. In order to receive compensation, the responsible party must be identified.
