Who Is Liable in a Truck Accident?

If you suffered injuries in a truck collision while driving a passenger vehicle, then you may be owed financial compensation for your losses, including medical bills, pain and suffering, missed wages, etc. We can evaluate your claim to determine who is liable for the accident, and help you pursue full and fair recovery.

In a truck-and-car accident, the liable parties can include one or more of the following:

  • Car or truck driver for negligence (intoxication, fatigued driving, texting, etc.)
  • Trucking company (failure to comply with regulations, failure to inspect, etc.)
  • Truck manufacturer of a defective part (malfunctioning brakes or steering, leaky fuel tank that causes an oil spill, etc.)
