Negligence in Truck Accident Cases

The content on this site is informational and does not create an attorney-client relationship or offer legal or medical advice. Every situation is different.

Liability in a truck accident is typically far more complicated to determine than in your average car accident. It can become a very difficult process, and with so much riding on establishing who was at fault, you should speak with a qualified truck accident lawyer if you were hurt in an accident.

Your attorney can begin an investigation into the accident which can impact the compensation you could recover from a personal injury suit.

Responsibility for the accident may lie with the:

  • Truck driver
  • Cargo company
  • Trucking company
  • Vehicle and vehicle part manufacturers
  • Truck rig owner
  • Truck-trailer owner
  • Truck loading company

The job of you truck accident lawyer will be to communicate with experts in the trucking industry to identify the cause of the accident and demonstrate clear liability in order to recover the compensation you deserve.

Victims of truck accidents can recover the financial damages to cover your medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses.

Speaking with an attorney after your accident is imperative, one reason being the information regarding the truck's operation recorded within the truck's Electronic Control Module, commonly known as the "black box," will be recorded over after 30 days. Any data which could help your case will be gone.

An attorney can get to work quickly to file the strongest case possible to recover damages for you.
