Unfortunately for victims, claims involving truck accidents can be extremely complicated. For this reason, if you or someone you love has been injured in a truck accident, an experienced truck accident lawyer in Macon can help.
The Responsible Parties
When you think about truck accidents, you probably assume that truck driver negligence is always to blame, but that isn’t necessarily the case. In fact, fault can be shouldered by a variety of entities that include:
- The Truck Driver – Truck drivers are professional drivers who must have a commercial driver’s license and must adhere to strict rules and regulations that include hours-of-service restrictions. When a trucker is distracted, drowsy, aggressive, impaired, or otherwise negligent, he or she poses a risk to everyone else on the road.
- The Trucking Company – The trucking company itself is responsible for hiring experienced truck drivers who have the necessary credentials, for not pushing their truckers to drive beyond the legal limit, for maintaining a safe fleet of trucks, and for employing experienced truck mechanics with the necessary experience and credentials. The trucking company can be found liable for truck accidents that ensue.
- The Truck Manufacturer – The truck manufacturer (and parts manufacturers) are responsible for putting out well-designed, big rigs that operate safely. Some dangerous truck accidents are caused by faulty trucks and/or truck parts.
