Sorting Liability in Trucking Accidents

There are several differences between car accidents and truck accidents cases that impact the type of litigation to be pursued. A car is generally no match for a truck when the two collide. The power and size of heavy semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, and other commercial trucking vehicles make colliding with them more dangerous than two cars colliding. Most often, there will be more damage to your automobile, and more severe injuries, even death, in an accident with a large semi-truck. A lawsuit against a trucking company is also more complex than one involving cars. You may need to sue multiple parties in a trucking accident, including:

  • The driver of the truck
  • The commercial truck company that owns the truck
  • The company that owns the cab of the truck
  • The company that owns of the trailer on the truck
  • The owner of the cargo being transported in the truck
  • The company that hired the driver to haul the cargo

Large trucking companies have deep pockets and they can afford teams of lawyers. You need a law firm experienced with the many tricky aspects of truck injury lawsuits. Our team of professionals knows how to investigate all evidence of liability in your truck accident case, including:

  • The review of information from dashboard computers
  • The number of rest stops the driver has taken
  • The hours the driver has been on the job
  • The training of the truck driver
  • The driver’s speed and braking pattern
  • The potential for driver intoxication or distracted driving
  • The number and type of complaints and violations of the driver, the trucking company, or other involved agents may have against them

Thorough investigation and aggressive representation by our lawyers who know how to litigate truck accidents will protect your rights and get you the maximum compensation for your injuries.
