In almost any truck accident, the truck company can likely be held at least partially accountable for an accident involving one of its trucks or drivers. While drivers are expected to conduct themselves responsibly and the companies that perform the maintenance on the trucks are expected to ensure that the trucks are roadworthy, it is the truck company that is ultimately held accountable when innocent people suffer serious injuries.
The work that drivers, maintenance companies and others do is performed on behalf of the truck company. It is the truck company’s responsibility to ensure that the right people are hired to do the work and that the work is done correctly. When serious accidents happen, it is important that you have an attorney who can help you determine if truck company negligence was a factor.
