Oppenheimer, PLLC in Louisville, our knowledgeable attorney can assist you in your pursuit of the damages you deserve.

Who is Liable for a Trucking Accident?

Although truck drivers are frequently found liable for truck accidents, it is not uncommon for other parties to share some of the responsibility as well. For example, if the driver was fatigued and broke the hours of service regulations due to the unreasonable expectations set by the trucking company, they might both be held liable for the accident.

Here are some of the parties who might be held liable for a truck accident:

  • The owner of the truck
  • The cargo loader
  • The truck manufacturer
  • Another outside party

Given the number of parties who can be held liable in such cases, experience is particularly crucial. If the attorney you hire is not experienced in negotiating with multiple parties, it is unlikely you will maximize compensation in your case.

Common Truck Accident Injuries

As stated above, most of the injuries involved in truck accidents are often catastrophic and life-altering. As a result, the damages involved are generally greater than what one might recover in a car accident case.

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

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Crushed bones
  • Severe lacerations
  • Torso and rib injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic amputation injuries
  • Death

Since many of these injuries result in permanent damage, compensation in such cases often seem quite high. However, that is because survivors often require lifelong care and treatment. Moreover, in addition to the extensive treatment that is often necessary, truck accident survivors are not always able to resume the life they enjoyed before the accident due to chronic pain and health complications associated with their injuries.
