Who's at Fault for My Truck Accident?

Liability is Not Always Clear

One of the most important aspects of any truck accident claim is the determination of liability. Liability is a legal concept that has to do with who is at fault and, in turn, responsible for paying damages. Sometimes liability is clear and unmistakable, but in other cases, the responsible party is not readily identifiable. Let the injury lawyers at Biren Law Group help you determine who was at fault for your truck accident.

Fault May Lie with Multiple Parties

After a truck accident, Biren Law Group will work with a team of seasoned investigators and experts to discover who was at fault. Although it may seem obvious that the truck driver is to blame, other parties may also share in the responsibility. For example, a defectively designed or manufactured component part could be the real culprit.

Other times, you may need to establish that the truck driver was at fault. For example, they may have been fatigued from driving too many hours without proper rest intervals. Although their negligence may not be readily apparent, our team of experts will look for evidence to prove that they were in violation of federal trucking regulations.

During an investigation, our personal injury lawyers often discover that a truck driver or trucking company failed to adhere to legally mandated safety inspections. In other cases, the trucking company failed to properly screen, train or monitor their drivers. It is also possible that a government entity failed to address a dangerous roadway.
