Who Is at Fault for a Commercial Truck Accident?
Preventable truck accidents are commonly caused by negligence on the part of:
- A trucking company: Often, this includes failing to train truck drivers and employees, failing to maintain trucks, requiring drivers to work long hours, or failing to enforce safety regulations.
- A truck driver: The trucker may be held accountable if they were drinking on the job, acting against company policy, or the like. Their employer is, more often than not, responsible for their negligence, however. This is because trucking companies are supposed to make sure their drivers are trained and do not present a danger to anyone else.
- Another truck company employee: This may include a cargo loader who knowingly packs an unbalanced or oversized cargo load. It may also include mechanics who make negligent mistakes when doing maintenance on or inspections of company trucks.
- Another driver, a motorcyclist, or a bicyclist: These parties may be liable for a crash if they were acting against the law at the time. Examples include if they were under the influence, distracted, speeding, running red lights, or trying to pass a truck illegally.
- A pedestrian: While rare, a pedestrian may be held liable if they were negligent and violated pedestrian laws. A common example is when pedestrians distractedly or drunkenly wander out into the street, without giving the trucker enough time to stop.
- A truck parts manufacturer, designer, or distributor: Sometimes, a truck part malfunctions and causes a truck crash, such as in a tire blowout or brake failure. Manufacturers, designers, and distributors can be held liable for a crash if their defective truck part was to blame.

In many cases, our truck accident attorney team will deploy a host of experts including forensic crash reconstruction experts, black-box experts, and trucking industry experts, so that no stone is left unturned in order to maximize your truck accident claim.
