Who is Liable in a Truck Accident Case?

Most car accident cases are relatively straightforward when it comes to liability. However, in a truck accident case, matters of liability are typically more complex and it is not uncommon for more than one party to be at fault. To maximize compensation, you will need an attorney who knows what to look for in a truck accident case and how to skillfully negotiate with multiple parties to ensure you are adequately compensated for your injuries.

Below are some of the parties who might be held liable in a truck accident case:

  • The truck driver
  • The trucking company
  • The loader of the truck
  • The manufacturer of the truck’s parts
  • The owner of the truck

One or more of these parties might be responsible for the injuries you sustained in a truck accident. To determine fault, our legal team will conduct a thorough investigation and ensure no stone is left unturned.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Fatigued driving
  • Severe weather
  • Overloading cargo
  • Break/ vehicle failure

Common Injuries in a Truck Accident

As mentioned above, the injuries sustained in a truck accident tend to be life-altering. Due to the weight, size, and force with which a commercial truck can strike, it is no wonder why these accidents have such a deadly track record.

Below are some of the most common injuries sustained in truck accidents:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Crushed bones
  • Traumatic amputation
  • Severe lacerations
  • Burn injuries
  • Organ damage

Given the severe nature of these injuries, damages in a truck accident case are often far higher than they are in most other motor vehicle accidents. Survivors often require extensive medical care and treatment and, in many cases, they are never able to achieve a full recovery.

What Is the Truck Accident Statute of Limitations in California?

The statute of limitations, in California, for filing a truck accident claim is two years from the date of the crash.
