Who can be held responsible after a truck accident?

  • The truck driver.
  • A third-party driver.
  • A shipper or loader of cargo.
  • The trucking company. A trucking company may be held liable for two primary reasons. First, if the trucking company committed an act of negligence, it may be held liable.
  • A truck part manufacturer. Sometimes, truck accidents are not caused by the actions of any of the drivers involved, but instead as a result of a defective and dangerous vehicle or vehicle part.
  • A municipality. Finally, while less common, some truck accidents are caused by road hazards, such as improper or lack of signage, potholes, poorly marked construction zones, a lack of guardrails, and other dangers.
