Who Can Be at Fault for a Trucking Accident?

Truck driving accident claims can be difficult to navigate because they involve having to determine who is liable for the resulting injuries and damages. There are a number of parties that can be held responsible for a truck accident.

Many times truck drivers or truck companies could be responsible for violating regulations laid out by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. In other cases, a truck manufacturer could be blamed for a faulty vehicle or truck part. There could be any number of parties who are liable for your collision, and thus are responsible for covering your damages.

The three main parties who could be faulted include:

  • Truck drivers — For texting, phone use, stereo distractions, fatigue, failure to maintain their vehicle, and other negligence
  • Truck companies — For failure to maintain truck, unsafe policies, failure to inspect vehicle, etc.
  • Truck manufacturers — For blown tires, brake failure, engine failure, and more

When you have suffered an injury due to a trucking accident, our skilled legal advocates can help you recover the maximum possible settlement and free you from much of the stress of legal proceedings. If you are looking for an experienced and recognized personal injury firm in San Angelo, contact Webb, Stokes & Sparks today.

Fighting Truck Driver Negligence

Because trucks are so much larger and heavier than the average passenger vehicle, the consequences of a truck driving accident can be incredibly severe, or even fatal. Their large size makes trucks especially difficult to operate, which is why if the driver does not take extra caution, the results could be drastic.

Truck drivers have a strict schedule they must stick to, leading them to drive for extended periods of time. This also usually involves driving late into the night, and early in the morning. With such long and late hours, it is not uncommon for truck drivers to experience extreme fatigue and exhaustion. In turn, fatigued drivers often have delayed reaction times and are more easily distracted on the road.

According to a study by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, truck drivers are 10 times more likely to be the cause of an accident, in comparison to other contributors such as the weather, road conditions, and vehicle performance. Many people are aware of the black box that is used to assist with the investigation of a plane crash. The trucking industry is also beginning to implement such methods, by using a device similar to black boxes. This can be used to record important information such as how fast the truck was going, the driver's speed patterns, when the brakes were used, and how long the driver had been on the road. With access to such information, it is becoming easier to gather the information that is necessary to determine who is liable for the trucking accident.
