Who Is Responsible in a Truck Accident?

It is essential that every element of a truck accident is carefully investigated. The primary cause of the accident must be determined, and from there, a specific party can be held liable for the accident.

Some of the parties that can be held responsible are:

  • The truck driver: In many circumstances, the driver of the 18-wheeler or delivery truck will be held responsible because that party is in control of the vehicle.
  • The company: The company that hired the driver can be held responsible if the driver has a history of negligent behaviors that could have tipped them off when making the hiring decision.
  • The maintenance company: If the accident was caused by break failure or another repair issue, the repair or maintenance crew can be held responsible.
  • The vehicle manufacturer: If it is found that the vehicle or its components are faulty, the manufacturer can be held responsible.

At Skipper Law, LLC, we value justice, integrity, and hard work. Get the highest level of professional representation and call (410) 919-2121 today.
