Who is responsible for my accident?

There are a number of different entities or individuals who may be held responsible for the accident.

  • The Driver: Human error is one of the biggest perpetrators of trucking accidents in the United States. While there are various laws in place that regulate how much a truck operator can drive, how far they can drive and the amount of acceptable alcohol content in their systems, accidents and negligence still occur. When you work with our team, we will work hard to determine if the driver acted in an illegal or reckless manner, thus causing the collision.
  • The Manufacturer: In some cases, product failure causes serious accidents. Trucks are large and capable of traveling at fast speeds, which is why it is essential for all parts and pieces to operate at peak performance. Common product failures include brake failure, steering failure and trailer hitch failure; all of these can create dangerous situations. Our firm will help determine if the manufacturer of a defective product can be held liable for the accident.
  • The Loader: Trucks often carry large loads across the state or country, and it is essential that these loads are properly secured prior to travel. If a load were to shift or come loose during the expedition, it could cause serious accidents and collisions. Semi-trucks could potentially jackknife with a sudden shift of weight and open flatbed trucks could lose their content on the road. If a loader improperly secured a shipment, he or she could be held accountable.
  • The City or County: There are some situations in which a poorly maintained road or poorly designed highway could cause a large semi-truck to be involved in an accident. When you work with our firm, we can work diligently to determine if a public or private entity is to blame for poor road care or improper signage.
