Who Can Be Held Liable for a Truck Accident?

Most truck accidents are a result of trucking company or driver negligence. In these instances, the company will be held accountable for not only its own actions, but the actions of its truck drivers. However, there are other parties that may be liable as well.

Parties that can be potentially at-fault for causing truck injury accidents include:

  • The truck driver.
  • The company that owns and/or operates the truck or employs the driver.
  • The owner of the tractor.
  • The owner of the trailer.
  • The owner, seller, distributor, or buyer of the goods being shipped.
  • Maintenance companies that serviced the truck.
  • The designer and/or manufacturer of the truck and/or trailer.
  • A public entity for roadway design or maintenance issues.

Who is held liable for the truck accident depends on many factors, and proving liability can be difficult. That is why you need an experienced truck accident lawyer in Southern California to help you obtain the compensation you need. 

What To Do After a Truck Accident in California

Truck accidents can lead to significant challenges, but taking immediate action is vital. To safeguard your rights and build a strong case, the skilled team at Perona, Langer, Beck and Harrison recommend the following steps:

  1. Call 911 and get immediate medical attention.
  2. Get the other party’s contact information.
  3. If your injuries allow, gather evidence by using your cell phone to take pictures of the accident scene and any injuries you or your passengers sustained. Also collect any contact information and statements from witnesses.
  4. Never accept fault and avoid making statements that could harm your case later.
  5. File a police report even if the accident appears minor and request copies of the report.
  6. Call a truck accident lawyer in Southern California.

In many commercial truck accident cases, the trucking company will send their own investigators to the accident scene. They are not there to help you, rather, to protect their own interests. After decades in personal injury law, we have seen every possible defense tactic that may be used against truck accident victims. We will not be intimidated. Instead, we will carefully investigate your case and use all available evidence to help you fight back effectively against efforts to unfairly deny or reduce your compensation.
