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. In those situations, the trucking company may try and blame another person or company making the case more complex. 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.
Of course, after you prove who is at fault for the accident, then you must prove damages. Damages are how much compensation you are entitled to as a result of the accident.
