    Who Is Liable for a Truck Accident?

    Truck accident claims are often more complex than other types of motor vehicle accident claims. This is because multiple parties may be held liable for the accident, including the truck driver, the trucking company, the truck manufacturer, and more. In some cases, the trucking company may be held vicariously liable for the actions of its employees. In other cases, the trucking company may be held directly liable for its own negligence.

    Depending on the circumstances, the following parties may be held liable for a truck accident:

    • The truck driver
    • The trucking company
    • The truck manufacturer
    • The truck maintenance company
    • The cargo loading company
    • Another motorist
    • The government entity responsible for maintaining the road

    Our truck accident attorney can help you determine who is at fault for your accident and who can be held liable for your damages. We can then help you take legal action to recover the compensation you are owed.

    What Causes Truck Accidents?

    Truck accidents can be caused by a variety of factors. In many cases, multiple parties share liability for the crash. Our Statesboro truck accident lawyer can help you determine who is at fault and who can be held liable for your damages.

    Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:

    • Truck Driver Negligence: Truck driver negligence is one of the leading causes of truck accidents. This can include any careless or reckless behavior on the truck driver’s part, such as speeding, tailgating, aggressive driving, distracted driving, and more. Truck drivers are also often fatigued, which can lead to serious errors in judgment and reaction time.
    • Truck Driver Error: Truck driver error is another common cause of truck accidents. This can include any mistakes the truck driver makes, such as failing to check blind spots, failing to yield the right of way, failing to properly secure cargo, and more.
    • Truck Defects: Sometimes, truck accidents are caused by defects in the truck itself. This can include defective tires, brakes, steering systems, and more. In such cases, the truck manufacturer or another party may be held liable for the accident.
    • Improper Truck Maintenance: Trucking companies are responsible for ensuring that their vehicles are properly maintained and in safe working order. When they fail to do so, serious accidents can occur. In such cases, the trucking company may be held liable for the accident.
    • Improperly Loaded Cargo: When cargo is not properly loaded or secured, it can shift during transit, causing the truck to become unbalanced and difficult to control. This can lead to a serious accident.
    • Violations of Trucking Regulations: The trucking industry is heavily regulated by both state and federal laws. When trucking companies or truck drivers violate these regulations, they can be held liable for any resulting accidents.

    Common Injuries in Truck Accidents

    Here are some common injuries sustained in truck accidents:

    • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI): The force of a truck collision can cause significant head trauma, leading to concussions or more extreme brain injuries. These injuries often result in long-term cognitive impairment, emotional changes, and physical disabilities.
    • Spinal Cord Injuries: Damage to the spinal cord can lead to partial or full paralysis.
    • Broken Bones and Fractures: The impact from a truck accident often leads to broken bones, which may require surgeries, casting, and prolonged physical therapy. Common fractures include arms, legs, ribs, and pelvis.
    • Internal Injuries: The force of a truck crash can cause internal injuries to organs like the liver, spleen, and kidneys. These injuries can be life-threatening and may not be instantly apparent, requiring thorough medical evaluation after an accident.
    • Lacerations and Burns: Shattered glass, metal, and other debris can cause severe cuts and burns. These injuries often result in significant scarring and may require reconstructive surgeries.
    • Whiplash and Neck Injuries: The sudden jolt of a truck collision can cause whiplash, leading to pain, stiffness, and loss of motion in the neck and shoulders. These injuries might seem minor initially but can lead to chronic pain.
