Truck Accident Lawsuits - Who is to Blame?
The central question that must be correctly answered following a trucking accident is: who is to blame. Often, the answer is fairly straight-forward. If the truck driver crossed the center-line, then it is obviously his negligence that caused the accident. But even in cases like this, the answer may not be quite so obvious or there may be more than one person at fault. For instance, in some truck accident cases, a maintenance company may be responsible for failing to properly maintain the brakes or some other piece of equipment for the truck involved in the crash. Some trucking accidents are caused by defective equipment and a product liability claim against the manufacturer is necessary.
