A central question in any personal injury case is, “Who is responsible for my injuries?” In the case of a truck accident, the answer may be complicated. There are so many potential parties who may share responsibility. The driver, trucking company, loaders, city or state may hold sole or shared liability for your injuries. The immediate circumstances of the accident do not always tell the full story, so an investigation is needed to establish all the facts.
Consider, for instance, a truck that is overloaded. The driver will need additional braking distance, which may be further exacerbated by poor road conditions. So, is the driver responsible for any accident, or does liability lie with the company that loaded the truck? The reality is, it could be one or all of these scenarios. A truck accident is a serious event, so it is important that any investigation is thorough and establishes all parties at fault.
