Truck Accidents Can Involve More Than Just The Truck Driver
In a truck accident, the truck driver is rarely the only negligent party. This greatly differs from car accidents, where the injured party goes up against typically the opposing driver and their insurance company. Truck accidents can involve multiple liable parties, including:
- The truck driver
- The manufacturer of the truck
- The owner of the fleet
- The shipping company
- The insurance company of the trucking company
- The maintenance provider
Depending on your case, more or fewer parties may be involved. Because of these complications, it is critical to conduct a thorough investigation early in the process to hold all negligent parties accountable.
Truck Drivers Must Adhere To Federal Safety Regulations
Truck drivers must abide by a wide set of federal safety regulations. These are meant to ensure both their safety and the safety of other drivers and vehicles. When they fail to meet those regulations and those actions result in a crash, you may take action against them.
We will help investigate the cause of the motor vehicle crash. In doing so, we will identify if safety regulations were violated, including excessive driving hours, inadequate training, speeding, improper maintenance or more. With over two decades of experience, Ms. Gerber will provide the dedicated, aggressive and knowledgeable representation you need to uncover damages for your severe injuries.
