Responsible Parties Involved in Vermont Truck Accidents
When you are involved in a truck accident in Vermont, it may seem like determining liability will be fairly straightforward. However, liability in a truck accident is never black and white, and even when a trucker is clearly responsible for an accident, there may be many other liable parties included in a personal injury lawsuit.
For example, if a trucker is speeding and causes an accident, you may think the trucker alone bears responsibility. However, if he was speeding because his overloaded trailer caused him to lose control of his cab, the company that loaded the trailer may share responsibility. Alternately, if his speed is a result of an unrealistic schedule, the company he works for may share liability. These examples may sound far-fetched, but they are anything but. In fact, it is incredibly common for multiple parties to share some portion of responsibility in a truck accident.
