How do you determine who is at fault for a truck accident?
Under FMCSRS, those in the trucking industry are required to comply with very specific regulations in order to keep everyone safe on the roads. Due to the sheer weight and size of a truck, the damages and injuries in these kinds of accidents can be severe. That is one of the main reasons for this separate set of safety regulations. If any of the following were at play at the time of the truck accident, an FMCSR violation most likely occurred giving weight to prove negligence, which is an essential element in any accident case:
- Drowsy truck driver
- Violations of safety rules
- Negligent hiring, training, or retention of drivers
- Distracted truck drivers
- Drivers log abuse
- Excessive driving hours
Depending on the violation, there are several potential parties who may be held responsible, or partially responsible, for your injuries. These parties include:
- The truck driver
- The truck owner
- The individual or company who leased the truck
- The truck and truck parts manufacturer(s)
- The individual or company in charge of loading the truck’s cargo
The negligence of any of the above parties may have caused the wreck resulting in your injuries. Therefore, one or more of them could be responsible for compensating you for your losses.
