Holding The Right Party Accountable For Your Truck Accident Injuries
Truck accidents are unique from other types of motor vehicle accidents. There are a number of potential parties who may be held liable for your accident injuries. While most people would point toward the truck driver who hit you as the one who is responsible for your injuries, it is possible that parties who were not present at the accident may be ultimately the cause of it.
At the Law Office of Jeffrey A. Jones, P.A., our Minnesota attorneys offer decades of experience to our clients throughout the state. We understand the complexities of these cases and how to determine who is truly liable for your truck accident injuries.
What Makes Someone Liable
Proof of negligence and that negligence causing your suffering are paramount to determining liability in your truck accident claim. To determine whether there was negligence is a complicated process. To begin, we take the time to investigate the nature of the accident and the actions of the parties involved, including:
- The driver – If the driver was on their phone, eating while driving, over tired or ignoring driving laws or their training as a truck driver, they are likely the responsible party.
- The employer – If the company who hired the driver did not properly train them or verify their training, overworked the driver and pushed them to exhaustion, or forced the driver to drive outside of legal regulations, they may be the ones who have to pay for your injury costs.
- The manufacturer – If a product inside the truck malfunctioned or failed to operate properly and it resulted in your injuries, the company that created it may be the ones who need to compensate you for your injuries.
No matter who is liable for your truck accident injuries, we will fight to maximize your settlement so it reflects the current and future costs of your injuries, including lost income, loss of earning potential, medical expenses, relocation and renovation costs to accommodate your injuries, and pain and suffering.
