The Responsibility of Truck Drivers, Trucking Companies, & Manufacturers

In many cases, truck accidents could be caused by a number of parties, including:

  • Commercial drivers
  • Trucking companies
  • Persons involved in loading materials
  • Staff responsible for maintaining large trucks
  • Truck part manufacturers

Sometimes trucking company employers place drivers in impossible positions in which they are forced to drive for unreasonably long hours, drive above the legal speed limit, drive late at night, or engage in other risky behaviors. In other cases, truck manufacturers and maintenance staff fail to ensure the safety, functionality, and durability of important parts, leading to disastrous malfunctions and accidents. Truck accidents can also be caused when the person or entity tasked with loading and shipment preparation makes mistakes during the process.

Truck drivers are also often responsible for causing severe accidents due to distraction, drowsy driving, inadequate training, lack of regard for roadway rules, and other forms of negligence.

Truck Accidents Caused by Other Passenger Vehicle Drivers

Serious truck accidents can also be caused by other cars. Another motorist could have instigated your accident by doing any of the following:

  • Driving between multiple large trucks
  • Driving in an area of the truck’s vicinity which is not visible to the driver (such areas are typically marked by signs and stickers)
  • Failing to slow down, speed up, or change lanes when a truck starts to change lanes
  • Abandoning their car in an active travel lane, rather than moving it off the road
  • Making a left turn in front of a truck at an intersection
  • Failing to pass or merge safely
  • “Cutting off” or abruptly pulling out in front of a truck
