Fayetteville Truck Accidents may Involve Several Parties

The federal government has recently published data indicating that over 100,000 people are injured in accidents involving large trucks each year.  These accidents have the potential to cause serious body injury as well as significant property damage, and could cost victims millions of dollars of losses.

Commercial truck accidents are generally more complicated than accidents only involving private vehicles, in no small part due to the potential parties who may incur liability as well as the myriad federal regulations that may be implicated. As a result, it is important that victims of truck accidents discuss their case with an experienced Fayetteville truck accident lawyer as soon as possible after an accident occurs.

There are several parties that may incur legal liability in the event of a truck accident. Some of the most common include the following:

 

  • Truck drivers

  • Truck manufacturers

  • Other drivers

  • Property owners

  • Parties responsible for the maintenance of a road or highway

  • Truck equipment manufacturers

  • Parties who own or are responsible for a truck’s cargo

  • A mechanic or a mechanic’s shop

  • Car manufacturers

 

These are just some of the potential parties that could be held liable in the event of a Georgia truck accident, so it is important to have your case reviewed by an experienced attorney. The kinds of losses for which victims may be able to recover after a truck accident include damage to property, lost income, pain and suffering, and loss of quality of life, among others. Often, trucking companies and their insurers will try and offer victims an unreasonably low settlement offer in order to limit their liability. Anyone involved in a truck accident should be certain to discuss their case with an attorney prior to accepting any such offer and also refrain from making statements to any insurance companies prior to obtaining representation.
