We Identify All Responsible Parties and Pursue Them for Maximum Compensation

Truck accident cases tend to be much more detailed and complex than typical vehicle collisions. For one thing, the damage and severity of injuries are often much greater. Moreover, truck accidents have the potential to involve more responsible parties. Rather than one or more drivers sharing sole liability, you also have the trucking company to deal with. Pursuing compensation from a big company is much different from seeking damages from an individual.

The parties that could bear liability for your truck accident include the following.

The Truck Driver May Be Held Responsible

The police report made after the accident is the first piece of evidence we look at it, as it often lists the truck driver as the at-fault party. That said, even if the police assign fault to you, it does not necessarily disqualify you from pursuing compensation from others.

The truck driver might bear responsibility for your injuries if evidence exists of any of the following:

  • Speeding;
  • Reckless driving;
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
  • Distracted driving, including texting behind the wheel;
  • Running a red light or stop sign or failing to yield right of way;
  • Following too closely; or
  • Improper lane change.

Truck drivers must also follow unique regulations that limit the number of consecutive hours they can drive and mandate the rest they must get between driving intervals. They must keep a log book of what hours they drive, what hours they rest, as well as other information like truck maintenance. If we find inaccurate or missing information in the driver’s log book, we can use it as evidence of negligent behavior.

The Trucking Company May Be Held Responsible

The law assigns vicarious liability to trucking companies for the actions of their drivers. That means even though the company itself was not behind the wheel to cause your accident, we can pursue them for damages based on the evidence we have of driver negligence.

This is beneficial to you because trucking companies are much larger and tend to have much greater financial resources than individual drivers. Our attorneys know how to negotiate with trucking companies—and, perhaps more importantly, their insurers—to make sure you get the most compensation for which you are eligible.

The Shipping Company May Be Held Responsible

The shipping company is the entity in charge of the freight on the truck. In certain situations, they can bear liability, too. Like trucking companies, shippers tend to be large and with substantial financial resources.

The Manufacturer May Be Held Responsible

If a defect with the truck or your vehicle caused or contributed to the accident, we can also pursue the manufacturer of the defective product for damages.

Compensation for Medical Bills

We pursue compensation for both your current and expected future medical bills, including emergency room visits, hospital stays, doctor visits, prescription drugs, rehabilitation, and medical devices.

Compensation for Lost Wages and Earning Capacity

We make sure the responsible party makes up for your lost income if you are unable to work while recovering from your injury. Also, we pursue compensation if the nature of your injury reduces your capacity to earn a living in the future.

Compensation for Property Damage

If the crash damaged or destroyed your vehicle, the responsible party has the burden to fix or replace it. We make sure you receive compensation for the total cost of fixing your vehicle or, in the case of a total loss, the full price of a comparable replacement.

Compensation for Pain and Suffering

Truck accidents often cause serious injuries. With major injuries come lots of pain and suffering. You deserve compensation for what you are going through and could continue to go through for weeks and months to come.
