Potentially Liable Parties in Trucking Accidents
Trucking accidents can prove quite difficult for a plaintiff to manage
without the help of a dedicated truck accident lawyer. Just establishing
liability in such a claim may be a multistep process that requires a keen
eye for details and ample time to sort through them.
In any given accident with a commercial truck, there may be multiple liable
parties, such as:
Truck driver: The most obvious answer is often the right one, and this is true in truck
accident cases. Many trucking accidents occur when the trucker makes a
critical mistake, drives while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs,
or falls asleep at the wheel.
Trucking company: The parent company that runs or owns the commercial truck has responsibility
over how the truck is managed and who drives it. Poor hiring processes
or creating schedules that keep truckers behind the wheel to the point
of exhaustion could put liability onto the trucking company.
Maintenance crew: A large commercial truck will require regular maintenance to be up to federal
standards of safety. If the maintenance crew does not perform the proper
repairs, a truck part could catastrophically fail in mid-route.
Load crew: Even the staff members in charge of loading a commercial truck can play
an integral part in keeping it safe, or making it unsafe. Improperly stacked,
secured, or loaded cargo can come loose or misbalance the trailer, making
it impossible for the trucker to safely control the vehicle.
