Who is liable in truck accidents?
As any experienced Los Angeles truck accident lawyer will tell you, truck accident liability is not always clear. Of course, in many cases the driver is liable through law breaking or other negligent behavior. Sometimes, though, other parties can be held liable for a truck accident, such as the company that employs the driver, the truck manufacturer, the company that is shipping the goods, and the company responsible for the truck maintenance.
For example, the trucking company can be liable based on their employee’s negligent behavior, as the driver is a representative of the company while on the job. Or, the truck maintenance company can be held liable if they did not perform adequate or accurate maintenance on the truck, and that negligence led to the accident.
Proving truck accident claims
Truck drivers across Llano, LA, and the rest of the country are all subject to a collection of federal laws under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA). Under the FMSCA, truck drivers must meet certain requirements like:
- Loading and unloading specifications
- Maximum drive and on-duty times
- Weight allocation
- Inspection and maintenance
If a driver or trucking company doesn’t meet, or breaks, any of these requirements, this leads to the assumption that the driver or trucking company is responsible for any problems caused by the violation. To prove this liability, a lawyer must prove that the driver broke the law.
