Determining Liability in a Truck Accident
To determine liability for a trucking accident in Dallas/Fort Worth, there are a number of factors that need to be taken into consideration. Many people assume that it is always the driver’s fault, but that may not be the case. Depending on the specific findings made by your truck accident attorney, any of the following could be held liable for your injuries:
- The truck driver may be held liable if he or she was operating the vehicle in a reckless or negligent way. Failure to yield, speeding, distracted driving or operating the vehicle under influence of alcohol or drugs could put the driver at fault for your accident and subsequent injuries. Another common mistake is when drivers fail to follow the hours of regulation and are extremely tired.
- Trucks rely on proper loading of their cargo to maintain balance and ensure that nothing will slip, slide, or roll during transport. Any truck, especially open-bed vehicles, can experience serious complications in the event of an overload or improperly secured cargo, including roll-offs, jackknifing, and rollovers.
The City or Municipality
- Poorly maintained streets, roadways, and highways can cause serious problems for truck drivers. If an area did not have proper signage, maintenance or warnings of clearance, then the city or county may be held liable.
- If product failure was the cause of the accident, the product’s manufacturer or distributor may be held liable. In the event of a brake failure, steering failure, or the failure of any other mechanical part, you may be able to hold the part supplier responsible.
The Leasing Company
- In the event that the truck was being leased, the leasing company may hold specific responsibilities for the care and maintenance of the vehicle. We can fully investigate the leasing company’s responsibilities if relevant to your case.
Of course, each situation is unique, and the discovery process for your specific case may vary. In order to determine your eligibility to file a personal injury lawsuit, contact Parker Law Firm right away. The state of Texas recognizes a statute of limitations on filing civil lawsuits, so you need to act quickly to ensure that your rights are protected.
