Who is Liable After a Truck Accident?
A truck driver is not always the one who is held liable for an accident, in fact, the trucking company is usually held responsible. Trucking companies are often caught encouraging their drivers to break trucking regulations in order to save their company time or money. Sometimes the truck driver is held liable, especially if the accident was directly caused by their negligence, such as driving while intoxicated. Although it happens less often, there are other parties that can be held liable such as a truck manufacturer or cargo loading team. The legal team at Oliver Law Group P.C. is experienced in investigating truck accident claims and is ready to help you today.
We Hold Trucking Companies Accountable
The trucking company will take immediate action after your accident. They'll send a "rapid response team" of investigators to the scene to collect evidence and take what they need to build a strong case. Their top priority is to reduce their own liability – which means they want to reduce or deny your compensation.
As soon as you contact Oliver Law Group P.C., we take immediate action, too. Our attorneys can intervene to secure critical evidence for your claim, such as the "black box" data and hours of service (HOS) log maintained by the trucking company. We'll work with you to understand the full cost of your injuries and negotiate with the trucking company and their insurance to get you full compensation for the accident.
The accident wasn't your fault, and your family shouldn't have to pick up the expense. Don't let the trucking company push you around. Oliver Law Group P.C. is here to help.
