The first task that your attorney will address is establishing the negligence of the liable party, in this case, the truck driver or owner. Truck drivers are required to follow certain federal regulations in order to safely transport their cargo. When these regulations are violated, they are more likely to cause a trucking accident, and are therefore liable for any damages caused.
In addition, victims can sue the trucking company that employs the truck driver for their indirect responsibility in causing the crash. This may mean that a trucking accident occurred as a result of the company’s failure to properly supervise the truck driver or for their negligent hiring of an undertrained driver. Once your attorney has established that the truck driver or trucking company is at fault for the accident, they will then be able to pursue financial compensation on your behalf.
