Due to constant consumer demands, there are so many commercial trucks on
the roads throughout the United States. Truck drivers are under continual
pressure to meet their deadlines as fast as they can, which is why
truck accidents occur quite frequently.
Recovering monetary damages for injuries in commercial truck accidents
can be a long and arduous process. While it is often simple to determine
fault in ordinary car accidents, crashes involving commercial trucks are
more complicated since the truck driver might not be the only party liable.
The victims of commercial truck accidents can pursue a claim against the
Truck driver. Commercial drivers have an obligation to operate their vehicles safely
and follow all traffic laws. When truck drivers blatantly fail to uphold
their obligation, they can be held liable for their negligence.
Trucking company. These commercial entities are responsible for the behavior and actions
of their employees on duty. Furthermore, trucking companies often place
pressure on their drivers to deliver their cargo in the fastest way possible,
even if it means ignoring federal regulations.
Cargo company. Improperly loaded or unsecured cargo is another common cause of truck
accidents. If the cargo shifts during transit, the vehicle becomes unstable
and difficult to maneuver.
Truck manufacturers. If the truck involved in an accident has defects, such as faulty braking
systems and tires, then the manufacturer can be held liable for the accident.
