Who Is Liable for a Trucking Accident?

Trucking accident cases tend to be more complicated than car accidents, mainly due to the number of possible liable parties. Because these incidents involve commercial vehicles, as well as drivers and companies who are held to stricter standards than ordinary motorists, trucking accidents can have multiple liable parties.

Depending on the circumstances of the accident, any of the following parties may be responsible:

  • The truck driver
  • The company that owns or leases the truck
  • The shipping company
  • The manufacturer of the vehicle
  • The supervisor on duty

At The Watson Firm, PLLC, we work to hold the liable parties accountable for your injuries. Trucking accidents often have devastating consequences, due to the sheer size and weight of these massive vehicles. Often, collisions with passenger vehicles can lead to severe injuries, including catastrophic injuries and death. If you’re dealing with mounting medical bills, pain and suffering, lost income, or even the loss of your loved one, our firm can help.

Steps to Take Immediately After an Accident

The first thing you should do after a truck accident is to seek medical attention at the hospital, urgent care clinic, or with your doctor. Truck accidents involve extreme forces, but an increase in adrenaline immediately following the accident can mask serious injuries. It is always best to get checked by a medical professional to make sure you are okay.

The next thing to do is contact law enforcement immediately and gather and preserve evidence. This includes getting the name and contact information of any witnesses, taking pictures of the accident scene, vehicle damage, and any other evidence.
