We Identify the Responsible Parties and Hold Them Accountable
A truck accident may differ from a standard auto accident in that there may be more parties involved on the liability side. In addition to the truck driver who hit you, the trucking company—the driver’s employer or contractor—often has vicarious liability for the driver’s actions. If there was a defect in the truck itself that contributed to the accident or made your injuries worse, the manufacturer may also bear liability.
We will investigate your accident thoroughly and identify every potentially liable party:
The Truck Driver
The truck driver is the most obvious and most likely party responsible for your Baytown truck accident injuries. If they violated a traffic law or displayed negligent behavior leading up to your accident—such as texting or using a smartphone—we can use it as evidence of liability. Truck drivers are also required by industry regulations to keep a detailed logbook of their activities (as affirmed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration), including when they drive, when they rest, and when they have their truck serviced. If they spend too many hours on the road without resting or they do not get regular maintenance on their vehicle, they can face penalties. We will look at their logbook and search for evidence of negligent behavior.
Because most truck drivers—whether they are employees or owner-operators—work at the behest of a trucking company, their employer may have vicarious liability for their actions. We can pursue the truck manufacturer for compensation if we find evidence that the truck featured a defect or flaw that either contributed to the accident or made it worse.
