What You Need to Know About Commercial Truck Accidents
18-wheelers can weigh more than 80,000 pounds. Because of their size, commercial trucks often cause expensive property damage and severe injuries when colliding with smaller passenger vehicles. Commercial truck drivers have a responsibility to drive safely and ensure their trucks are well maintained and fully functional. If you have been injured in a truck accident, our experienced lawyers can discuss your options for pursuing compensation.
Who may be liable for your injuries?
- The driver
- The trucking company
- The truck manufacturer
- The maintenance and repair company
If the driver was speeding, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or driving recklessly, you can file a lawsuit to seek compensation. Trucking companies must not put unreasonable expectations on drivers. In fact, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration states that drivers must not operate a commercial truck while ill or fatigued, and drivers must take regular breaks to stay alert. Depending on the situation, the truck itself may have malfunctioned, and you can pursue compensation from the manufacturer or maintenance provider.
