Who Is Liable for My Accident?
Truck drivers are held to extremely high standards when it comes to road safety. When an accident occurs, many eyes will be looking at the truck driver for an explanation. However, fault may rest on the shoulders of more parties. If the driver was employed by a large company, they will use numerous tactics to protect their driver and their assets. Hiring an attorney is crucial to countering these attacks.
Potentially liable parties in a truck accident include:
- The truck driver
- The truck driver’s employer
- The truck owner
- The truck manufacturer
- Company leasing the truck
- The last mechanic to work on the truck
Many parties are potentially liable in these cases and they will all be trying to downplay their responsibility in your accident. An experienced Rhode Island truck accident lawyer can help you hold the appropriate parties accountable.
