Who Is Responsible for A Truck Accident?
If a truck driver did something wrong that caused an accident, it may seem that he is the obvious person to sue for any resulting damages. But truck accident cases are complex — and may require suing a number of parties to win your case. Tom Diehl knows that the answer to who is responsible for a truck accident isn’t always easy. He is willing to commit his time and resources to help find out who is liable for your truck accident — and bring them to court to hold them accountable. If you live in Lebanon, Hillsboro, Wilmington, or Hamilton, Ohio, reach out today to schedule a free consultation.
Trucking companies have put ever-increasing pressure on their drivers to meet unrealistic deadlines. This has led to a rise in unsafe driving behavior from big rig operators. They may drive when fatigued, fail to take the time to properly inspect their vehicles or loads, disregard poor road conditions or adverse weather, or drive too fast to get somewhere by a certain time. Beyond this pressure, truck companies seeking to improve their bottom line may take shortcuts when it comes to hiring, screening and training drivers. They may not properly maintain their fleet. Any of these factors could lead to an accident — and potentially catastrophic injuries.
How Trucking Laws Impact Your Case
At Diehl & Hubbell, we are well-versed in these issues impacting safe driving. We understand trucking industry standards and customs, as well as the laws that regulate trucking. We'll fully investigate your truck accident to determine the true cause of the crash — and will include all responsible parties in the lawsuit. This may include the truck driver and the trucking company, the equipment or vehicle manufacturer, other negligent drivers and government entities. By bringing in all possibly liable parties, we will maximize your chances for a full recovery.
Moving goods across state lines in large commercial vehicles involves complying with a complicated array of federal, state and local laws. Both the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and state law heavily regulate the trucking industry. If a trucking company has violated any of the laws and regulations that govern the trucking industry, it may be the basis for imposing liability. Tom Diehl is familiar with these laws and will utilize them to help prove your case.
