Who is Liable in a Commercial Truck Accident?
If you were injured in a truck accident, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering. Truck accidents can be caused by driver negligence and a variety of other factors.
Many parties could be responsible for your compensation, including:
- The truck driver – Truck drivers may be liable for injuries for negligent actions, such as driving at excessive speeds, failing to follow regulations, or use of alcohol or drugs while driving the truck.
- A manufacturer – When accidents are caused by mechanical failure, the manufacturer of the truck or a specific part may be liable for the resulting injuries.
- The trucking company – The trucking company employing the driver may be liable for an accident if the company failed to properly maintain the truck or were aware of the driver’s negligent behavior.
- Another negligent party – Not all truck accidents are caused by the truck driver, truck company, or mechanical failure. If the accident was caused by someone else, that person may be liable.
The first step in a truck accident injury claim is to establish negligence. Our Phenix City truck accident lawyers examine all relevant factors and evidence to determine liability and advise you about the best way to proceed in your situation.
Each settlement will be different depending on the unique elements of your case. If you suffered severe injuries (as is common in truck accidents) then your compensation will need to factor in long-term recovery expenses as well as lost wages. In general, each truck accident settlement will factor in the following:
- Medical bills
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income
