Who Can Be Held Liable in a Truck Accident?

Car accidents can be complicated affairs, but in most circumstances the liability for an accident resides with the drivers involved. Our truck accident lawyers understand that truck wrecks usually raise far more complicated liability questions.

True fault for your accident can often be found far from the site of the wreck. Our truck accident lawyers are skilled investigators and have years of experience finding and proving fault.

Parties held liable in a truck accident can include:

  • Drivers: When a truck driver is negligent or irresponsible in handling his vehicle, he can be held liable by the courts.
  • Trucking companies: Many trucking companies force their drivers to meet unrealistic schedules or fail to properly maintain their vehicles.
  • Cargo companies: A common cause of truck accidents is an overloaded or improperly loaded truck. The entity that loaded cargo into the truck can be held responsible for these accidents.
This is not an exhaustive list. You can trust in The Cochran Firm to find the true cause of your truck accident.
