Multiple Parties Can Be Held Liable for Truck Accidents

On Behalf of | Jan 3, 2017 | Trucking Accidents

These accidents are often caused by negligent truck drivers who are under intense pressure to travel long distances in short amounts of time to deliver cargo to meet deadlines. This can lead to speeding, drowsy driving and impaired driving as truck drivers often take amphetamines to stay awake.  

However, although there are many situations in which a truck driver can be held liable for an accident, there are also a number of other parties who may be responsible as well, including:

  • Truck companies – These entities could be held liable for placing unrealistic expectations on drivers, including deadlines that are almost impossible to meet. These expectations can increase the risk of reckless driving.
  • Cargo companies – Trucks often cause accidents because cargo companies put too much cargo on the truck or improperly load the cargo. This increases the risk of cargo falling off trucks and hitting cars.
  • Truck manufacturers – Trucks can have defective parts just like any other vehicle. However, defective trucks are more dangerous than traditional passenger vehicles because trucks are significantly larger. Defective trucks include those that were poorly designed or have parts that are more likely to malfunction on the road.

If you suffered severe injuries or lost a loved one in a truck accident, contact the truck accident attorneys at Simien & Simien for a free legal consultation. We know how to thoroughly investigate your accident to determine all the parties who should be held liable.

We are committed to helping you obtain fair compensation for all of the damages you have suffered, whether they are physical, emotional or financial. While compensation cannot change what happened, it can provide invaluable financial assistance during this difficult time.

Our personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means we do not obtain compensation for our services unless our clients do first.
