Who’s Responsible for Truck Accidents?
Whether your accident was caused by negligent truck operation maintenance or manufacture, the truck accident lawyers at Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough can help.
Several parties may be responsible for your truck accident, including the:
- Truck Driver
Truck drivers are held to high standards by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. In addition to standard driving laws, they also are subject to rules for hours driven per day, miles driven without breaks, and licensing requirements. If truck drivers violate these guidelines and cause accidents, they can be held responsible for the damages resulting from your accident.
- Truck Manufacturer
Truck manufacturers must make sure their trucks are safe and capable of traveling for thousands of miles without breaking down. When truck manufacturers cut costs by using inferior parts or manufacturing techniques, trucks can fail while on the road and cause serious accidents.
- Truck Owner
Truck owners are responsible for making sure their trucks are regularly maintained and serviced. If they allow trucks to stay on the road past their required maintenance intervals, their brakes, steering, or tires could fail and cause injuries.
