Who Is Liable for a Truck Accident?

When it comes to truck accidents, trucking businesses, and truck drivers are held to stricter levels of care. This is due to the fact that truck drivers must adhere to strict safety standards and complete an extensive training program in order to get a commercial driver's license (CDL). Additionally, trucking firms must produce safety records and submit them to specified safety audits.

As a result, when a truck accident occurs, the trucking company and/or the truck driver are liable for damages. In most cases, multiple parties are liable for the truck accident and the victim's injuries. This may include the driver, company, truck manufacturer, cargo loaders, truck maintenance providers, or even government entities in cases involving poor road conditions or signage issues. This is why it is so important to hire an experienced truck accident lawyer in Fort Walton Beach.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Many various things, including driver negligence, defective or badly maintained equipment, and flawed vehicle design, can result in truck accidents. Weather conditions and other auto accidents can also contribute to truck accidents.

Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue

Truck Accident Injuries

Truck accidents often result in serious and catastrophic injuries. This is because of the sheer size and weight of these vehicles.
