Who is Responsible for Your Commercial Vehicle Accident?

Negligence in Trucking Accidents

After any collision, the police will determine who was at fault for the accident. In cases involving a commercial vehicle, this can become especially complicated.

Commercial vehicles face more stringent regulations and laws governing their use. Violating those may make them, or an entity related to them, responsible for your injuries.

At-fault parties in a commercial accident may include:

Commercial Drivers

Drivers can always be at fault. Commercial drivers face more laws regulating how they can drive. For instance, commercial drivers are limited to driving a certain number of hours per day and week.

Violating those, or more common traffic laws, may mean that they’re at fault for your accident.

Trucking Companies

The company employing the commercial driver involved in your accident may be at fault, too. If they don’t hire qualified drivers or don’t maintain accurate safety records for their drivers, they may be negligent.

Maintenance Companies

Commercial trucks must undergo routine maintenance and inspections. If the company responsible for doing that failed, then they may bear responsibility for your accident–especially if it happened because of a mechanical failure.

And More

Determining negligence is an important part of what a personal injury lawyer does in a commercial accident case. If you were injured in a crash with a large vehicle, contact Biggs & Greenslade to schedule a consultation today.
