The Complexities of Truck Accident Cases
Truck accident cases can get extremely complex, because there are a wide variety of potential causes for the accident, and many parties that could be held responsible. Consider the following potential causes of a truck accident:
- Tired, distracted, or inexperienced driver
- Driving under the influence
- Poorly loaded or poorly secured cargo
- Faulty parts—bad tires, defective brakes and the like
- Poor maintenance
These are just a few of the potential causes. Just with these few, the following parties could come into play in settling your case:
- The truck driver
- The owner of the truck
- The trucking or shipping company
- The cargo loading company
- The maintenance crew responsible for the truck
- The manufacturer of faulty parts
Dealing with Insurance Companies
Each of these potential responsible parties is likely to have its own insurance carrier, and none of them are going to want to pay out your claim. They’ll start by offering you a lowball offer, and if you refuse it, they will begin arguing amongst themselves about who holds responsibility. One common tactic is for the trucking company to claim zero fault because a driver is an independent contractor.
The law states, however, that regardless of the employee status of the driver, any trucking company whose name is on a vehicle, or on the certification placard inside, can be held responsible for an accident involving that vehicle. Trucking companies are responsible, despite attempts to claim otherwise.
Worse, as the blame game goes on, they will begin looking for reasons to not pay out at all. They’ll claim you’re not that badly hurt, even not hurt at all. They might even try to blame you for the accident. This can leave you feeling left in the cold when all you want is your life back.
