Being injured in a truck accident can be overwhelming. When the accident was caused by the negligence of another party, the situation can become increasingly stressful. If you have been the victim of a truck accident and believe that you have the right to pursue legal action, our team of Palm Springs truck accident lawyers is prepared to assist you in our free consultation.
Due to the large size and heavy weight of trucks, truck accidents can lead to substantial injuries and even death. Vehicles of this size are more difficult to navigate and harder to slow down. Since it is more challenging to operate a truck than a normal-size passenger vehicle, it is important that the driver possesses a high level of skills.
Who is liable in truck accidents?
Liability in truck accidents can be more difficult to prove than normal car accidents. This is because there are multiple parties that can be held liable for truck accidents.
Possible responsible parties for a truck accident include:
- The truck driver
- The owner of the truck
- The manufacturer of the truck
- The manufacturer of the truck part that contributed to the cause of the accident
- The person or company that leased the truck from the owner
- The shipper or loader of the truck's cargo
While there are many parties that can be found liable for a truck accident, the responsibility is often placed upon the driver of the truck. Because truck drivers work long hours during the day and night, they are likely to experience sleep deprivation, exhaustion, and fatigue. As a result, their ability to properly operate a truck decreases, while the chance of an accident increases.
