Who Is Liable in a Trucking Accident?

Depending on the unique circumstances of the accident, various parties may be liable in a truck accident. Common liable parties include: 

  • The truck driver: If the accident was caused by the driver's negligence, such as driving while fatigued, distracted, or under the influence, they can be held liable for damages.
  • The trucking company: Often, trucking companies are responsible for the actions of their employees. They can also be liable for inadequate driver training or pressuring drivers to violate safety regulations.
  • The maintenance provider: If a mechanical failure due to improper or negligent maintenance led to the accident, the party responsible for servicing the truck could be held accountable.
  • The cargo loaders: Incorrectly loaded or secured cargo can cause accidents. If the loader's negligence is to blame, they may be liable.
  • The truck manufacturer: If the accident was caused by a manufacturing defect in the truck or its parts, the manufacturer might be liable for any resulting harm or injury.
  • Other drivers: Sometimes, other negligent drivers on the road contribute to or cause an accident involving a truck, making them potentially liable as well.

Hiring a lawyer for a truck accident claim is paramount due to the complexity and high stakes involved in such cases. Truck accidents often result in severe injuries, extensive property damage, and significant financial losses. Moreover, navigating the legal intricacies of a truck accident claim, including determining liability, dealing with insurance companies, and negotiating settlements, requires specialized knowledge and expertise. 

A skilled lawyer can thoroughly investigate the accident, gather evidence, and build a compelling case on behalf of the victim. Additionally, having legal representation ensures that the victim's rights are protected and that they receive fair compensation for their injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. Ultimately, hiring an attorney maximizes the chances of achieving a favorable outcome and securing the justice and compensation deserved after a traumatic truck accident.

Recovering Compensation from Negligent Truck Drivers

Under Minnesota’s no-fault insurance law, your insurance company will likely compensate you for out-of-pocket expenses. These typically cover economic damages or financial losses, such as hospital bills, treatment costs, and property damage. However, this compensation generally doesn't include non-economic losses like pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of consortium, and loss of enjoyment of life, as well as scarring, disfigurement, impairments, and disabilities. 

Our Minneapolis attorneys work closely with investigators and experts to determine the cause of trucking accidents and bring all liable parties to justice. We can fight to maximize the value of your claim by ensuring all recoverable damages are identified and supported with strong evidence. Our lawyers never hesitate to take cases to trial when insurance companies refuse to offer fair settlements, allowing you to rest easy knowing your rights are protected. 

  • “Michael and his staff were always there to answer any questions”

    I was in a Motorcycle accident the day before my wife’s birthday. It was a dark couple of days until Michael got involved. He and his staff were always there to answer any questions I had. Helped smooth this rough patch out.

  • “Michael Fay is a professional attorney who exudes excellence.”

    Michael Fay is a professional attorney who exudes excellence. I had the immense pleasure of working with him on a personal injury case that required a lot of time and negotiation. Michael worked tirelessly to ensure the client was happy. The opposing party was not willing to approve a settlement based on his clients claims. Michael was able to foster a very tactful and intelligent dialogue with the opposing counsel to reach a very lucrative settlement for his client.
