On a large scale, most commercial truck drivers are very responsible and safe. Their job is to travel professionally and efficiently, and they are well-aware of the serious risks that can come from their mistakes. However, despite the careful actions of many truck drivers, some are negligent enough that they cause catastrophic truck accidents. These types of accidents are ones that cause death or very serious injury that changes your life. But, fault is difficult to assign in the aftermath of these accidents. Read on to find out why you may need a lawyer in this horrific situation.
In order for you to achieve the justice you deserve, you’ll need to prove that negligence was the cause of the accident. For example, a commercial truck driver who was texting or on the phone can be a serious form of negligence. Likewise, their driving ability to could be impaired, due to alcohol or excessive fatigue. Any violation of traffic law could prove negligence, so a police report is a necessity.
Who is at Fault?
Fault in these situations is difficult to determine for many reasons. For one, truck drivers are motivated by the potential loss of their job. They could very well be terminated if they’ve committed any kind of negligence that caused a catastrophic accident. Untrustworthy individuals may shift the blame without proof, muddying the situation. In addition, there are usually multiple cars involved in these kinds of accidents due to the size of commercial trucks. Cars that crash into one another due to a truck impact can lead to multiple claims of fault. In this case, the legal situation becomes difficult and extremely hard to manage.
