Establishing Liability In Truck Accidents: The Basics
There are many instances in which you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries following a truck crash. For example, a trucking company and/or its driver may be liable for your trucking-related injuries when:
- The truck driver was fatigued at the time of the accident because he or she was driving for more hours than permitted under federal regulations.
- The truck driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident
- The truck was improperly loaded and this contributed to the accident.
- The truck’s components ― brakes, tires and other equipment ― were poorly maintained and this contributed to the accident.
- The trucking company hired unqualified or dangerous truck drivers, or failed to properly vet or train truck driver applicants.
These are just a few instances in which you may be able to establish liability. To learn more, call us today.
