Third Party Liability in Trucking Accidents

Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

Jeannette A., Client

I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Atlanta Truck Crash Law Firm for
Third-Party Liability Claims

Multiple parties that could be potentially responsible for your accident with a truck.

Sorting out who is responsible for your accident and then holding them accountable is quite difficult for non-lawyers. If you’ve been injured in a truck accident, we strongly recommend that you contact an Atlanta truck crash accident law firm to discuss your case.

 

 

Trucking Companies Can Be Held Liable for Crashes in Atlanta

After the driver, the trucking company is often the most likely to be responsible for the accident. Trucking companies have an obligation to ensure that their drivers and their vehicles are safe enough to be on the road, which includes the following:

  • Screening their drivers to ensure that they have safe driving records and no history of drug or alcohol abuse
  • Performing routine maintenance of their trucks to make sure they are in proper working order
  • Providing their drivers with sufficient training and supervision
  • Ensuring compliance with federal, state, and local laws and regulations
  • Discouraging unsafe driving practices

Unfortunately, many trucking companies look first to the bottom line, and as a result, will cut corners on things like maintenance and driver training. In addition, they often place unreasonable expectations on their drivers and encourage them to speed, drive far more hours than they should, and engage in other unsafe behaviors. An Atlanta truck accident law firm can look at these factors and determine if the truck company is liable for the truck accident that caused your serious injuries.

Manufacturers Can Be Responsible for Atlanta Truck Accidents

Some accidents may be the result of a mechanical failure caused by a defective part, such as faulty brakes or defective tires. These cases can be especially challenging – you first have to identify the defect that caused the accident, and then you have to identify the company that should be held responsible. In addition, the part could have been subject to recall, and the trucking company ignored it, or it failed due to a lack of maintenance.

Atlanta Truck Accident Law Firm for Unbalanced Load Crashes

The way a truck is loaded is very important. If the trailer isn’t loaded properly, the truck can become unbalanced, making it difficult to maneuver and susceptible to roll-overs. If the accident was caused due to an unbalanced load, you may have to identify the entity who loaded the truck and then pursue them for your claim.

More than One Party Can Be At Fault for Catastrophic Truck Accidents in Georgia

In almost every truck accident, the reality is often that multiple parties may be at fault. The driver was driving negligently, the cargo loader failed to load the truck properly, and the trucking company did not replace the tires on the truck that were worn out. As a result, you will likely have to pursue multiple parties, many of which will be corporate entities. An Atlanta truck accident law firm will know how to identify the parties involved, how to navigate the claim process, and ultimately how to get the compensation you deserve.
