Who Can Be Held Liable In A Truck Accident?

Truck accidents can cause catastrophic injuries. Before your attorney can fight for compensation to help you pay for medical bills and other expenses, however, it must be clear who was responsible for the accident. The answer isn’t always obvious. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, we are here to hold the negligent parties responsible and secure the maximum possible settlement. To make an appointment to discuss your case at our law firm, Gregory S. Young Co., LPA, call 513-721-1077 or contact us online for more information.

Overtired Or Inattentive Drivers Are Dangerous

The first place to look for liability in a truck accident is, of course, the driver. Truck drivers are often under pressure to drive long routes. The resulting fatigue can cause inattention that can become dangerous or even deadly on the road.

Trucking Companies Don’t Always Prioritize Safety Over Profit

Trucking companies are businesses whose goal, like any other business, is to be profitable. Sometimes the need to be profitable can push these companies to demand more from their drivers than might be safe. Whether it’s working long hours or driving with overloaded and imbalanced cargo, this profit motive can put the truck drivers themselves—as well as everyone else on the road— at risk.

Unsafe Trucks Are A Risk

Poor design or inadequate maintenance can make it more likely that a truck driver could lose control over his or her vehicle on the road. When an unsafe truck is the cause of an accident on the road, plaintiffs can sue the manufacturer or maintenance professionals whose negligence resulted in injury.
