If you or a loved one have been involved in a truck accident, it is very important that you call and speak to a truck accident lawyer, and that’s because an attorney will be able to tell you all of the people and the companies that will be liable to you for your injuries.
Due to the severity of injuries in truck accidents, it is critical for the attorney to find as many liable parties as possible, to increase recovery.
Most often, when you are involved in a truck accident, the responsible parties may include the following:
First, there’s the truck driver. However, the driver generally has little to no money.
Second, there’s the trucking company. The company that hired the driver may be responsible if the past record of the driver shows negligent driving in the past.
Third, if the accident was caused due to mechanical failure of the truck, the mechanics may be held responsible.
Fourth, sometimes it is possible to hold the actual manufacturer of the truck responsible if the vehicle was designed or constructed with defects that contributed to the wreck.
