Liability In Truck Accidents
A fully loaded semi-truck can weigh as much as 80,000 lbs. Truck drivers must therefore use a high degree of caution in order to avoid causing accidents. If a truck driver is negligent and causes an accident the company that they work for could be found at fault. Companies are generally responsible for the negligent conduct of their employees – insofar as those employees are working within the course and scope of their job duties. Any person that is injured in a truck accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim.
