Liability In Truck Accidents
Truck drivers have a responsibility to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner and take steps to avoid accidents. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has set up a number of safety regulations that trucking companies are supposed to follow. But far too often these are ignored either through carelessness or in pursuit of greater profits. Prescription drug use and speeding are the two leading causes of truck accidents in the United States. Fatigue also plays a large role in a number of crashes. Depending on the facts of any particular case, a victim of a truck accident may be entitled to multiple forms of recovery.
Truck drivers in California will usually have access to the state’s workers compensation system if they are injured on the job. A third-party liability claim may also be possible if an accident was caused by the negligence of another truck driver that worked for a seperate company. A truck accident attorney can thoroughly investigate your case and help you receive the maximum compensation possible for your injuries. Commercial trucks usually have event data recorders (EDRs) that offer a great deal of insight into what happened right before a crash. But there are very strict statute of limitations associated with filing a claim so it’s important to act quickly.
