Determining Liability for a Truck Accident

It is critical for truck drivers to conduct a series of safety regulations called the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. These include truck maintenance, driver training and driver hours. When these regulations are not followed through, the risk of a collision is risen. The factors for these collisions can include, but are not limited to:

  • Driver fatigue

  • Inattention of driver

  • Speeding

  • Poor truck maintenance

  • Overloaded truck

  • Imbalanced or unsecured loads

  • Improper turning and lane changes

  • Equipment failure

Liability can fall upon:

  • The driver

  • The owner of the tractor

  • The owner of the trailer

  • The owner of the freight

  • The truck’s manufacturer

  • A third-party maintenance company
