Who's Responsible for a Truck Accident?
Large commercial vehicles do pose a heightened risk for other motorists on the road and on busy trucking routes like I-40 and I-35, that risk can be many times multiplied. While driver error is still a prominent cause for these kinds of accidents, negligence in these claims can often be assigned to other parties that failed to meet safety standards and best practices.
Negligent parties in a truck accident claim can include:
- The truck driver
- The shipping/distribution company
- The company that leased the truck
- The owner of the truck/rig
- The manufacturer of the truck
