Who Is At Fault For My Truck Accident?

Who Is At Fault For My Truck Accident?

Sunday, August 17th, 2014

For New York motorists, truck accidents pose a very serious threat to your safety. While car accidents are also a serious danger, truck accidents often cause more severe damage, and they are also considerably more complex in the legal arena.

Our Newburgh truck accident lawyer has years of experience handling these difficult claims, and he knows what it takes to get the compensation you deserve.

Perhaps one of the most complicated but most significant elements of your truck accident claim is establishing who should be held liable for damages. Because of the nature of the commercial trucking industry, there are several different parties that may be held responsible for your truck accident injuries including:

  • The owner and/or driver of the truck
  • The cargo company or trucking agency
  • The manufacturer of the truck and/or its parts
  • Government authority (if the accident was due to road design defects or disrepair)

Even when you have identified all of the potentially liable parties, there is still a great deal of investigative work to be done to legally establish which party should be held liable and to what extent.

If you have suffered a personal injury due to a commercial truck collision and you need legal representation to get the compensation you deserve, contact Charles N.
