The most common reasons for trucking accidents are driver’s fatigue, interruption of the traffic flow, unfamiliarity with the roadway, driving too fast for the conditions on the road at the time, and inadequate surveillance. Sadly, those accidents can happen to anyone, as semi-trucks are tricky to maneuver. If you or a loved one was injured as a result of a trucking accident, it is advised that you hire a lawyer to help with the legal side of things. While you recover, recuperate, and heal, leave it to your lawyer to deal with the insurance and matters of compensation.
Fighting the trucking company’s insurance carrier is going to be one of the most stressful parts of the tracking accident’s aftermath.
The trucking company typically will send an accident response team of investigators and lawyers to make their own assessments. Their goal is to minimize the company’s expenses, by trying to disprove the truck’s fault for the accident.
This is why you need your own team of investigators and lawyers with experience in trucking accidents. We will ensure that the evidence from the accident is properly preserved and determine the extent of liability of the trucking company.
Who Is Responsible for A Trucking Accident?
There are different types of scenarios when it comes to trucking accidents, and liability can be placed with one or several entities. For example, if it was the driver who’d made a mistake that caused an accident, responsibility for it would be not only on them, but also on their employer. If the accident was a result of some sort of technical issue or mechanical defect in the truck itself, liability would lay with the truck manufacturer, the loading company, the owner of the truck, or the company responsible for the vehicle maintenance. There are just too many variables, and you can’t hold the at-fault party accountable, unless you can prove their fault.

Trucking accidents resulting in injury or death of the victim, are subject to personal injury claims or wrongful death claims.
This means that any quantifiable losses the victims or their surviving family suffered can potentially be compensated by the party at fault or their insurance company. Therefore, it’s important to conduct a proper investigation on behalf of the victim and determine what exactly caused the accident. This is a complex process, that needs to be done by an experienced professional, who knows how these procedures work. Leave the legal battles and investigations to your team of attorneys, and give yourself time to heal, recuperate, and get your life back on track.
