Liable Parties in Truck Accidents
Truck accident cases are not as straightforward as accidents involving only passenger vehicles. Determining liability involves thorough investigation to find all of the underlying causes which were not apparent to the naked eye at the scene of the accident. This often involves violations of state and federal trucking regulations by the trucking company, truck driver and others, and may involve truck or equipment defects. What may seem like a simple case of truck driver negligence may have really been the culmination of many factors such as improper loading, improper hiring practices and inadequate truck maintenance.
Examples of those who may be held liable for your truck accident injuries include:
- Trucking company, employer or lessee
- Third party logistics provider (3PL)
- Freight shipper
- Freight broker
- Truck leasing company
- Third party hired to load truck
- Manufacturer of defective truck, parts or equipment
- Seller of defective parts or equipment
- Third party contracted to perform maintenance or repairs
- Another negligent driver
- Truck driver
- Weigh station or personnel
- Government entity responsible for design, construction and/or maintenance of defective roadway
