Who is Liable for my Truck Accident Injuries?

One of the things that makes truck crash cases in Missouri so challenging is the number of parties involved and, thus, the number of parties who are potentially liable for your damages following your truck crash.

One of the responsibilities of your truck accident injury lawyer is to prove that the defendant is responsible for causing you harm. We investigate your claim thoroughly and gather and examine all available evidence to properly assess liability and negotiate fair compensation from the liable party's insurance company.

Liability in Missouri truck accident injury cases are rarely cut and dry. That is due, in part, to the fact that there are a number of parties involved who may hold some responsibility for the truck accident. In addition, trucking companies carry very expensive insurance policies and are even more motivated than normal to avoid paying that money to injury claimants. With the help of a skilled truck accident injury lawyer, you can make a full recovery. You can depend on our fierce negotiation skills and refusal to back down to make the insurance company pay and help you receive fair compensation.

There are several parties that could be to blame for your truck accident. Those parties include:

  • The truck driver
  • The trucking company
  • The truck owner
  • The manufacturers of the truck or parts used on the truck
  • The shipping company
  • The mechanic servicing the vehicle
  • Public entities

Your St. Louis truck accident injury lawyer from Burger Law will prove the ways in which each liable party contributed to and is responsible for your injuries and other damages. Call our truck accident attorneys today at (314) 500-HURT so we can begin evaluating your claim and building a strong case to demand compensation for you.

The Truck Driver

Your truck accident injury lawyer can help you recover compensation by proving that the truck driver is responsible for the accident. The driver may be responsible, in whole or in part, for your accident if they break a traffic law, text and drive, drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol, drive while drowsy or make another error in operating their enormous vehicle.

The Trucking Company

The trucking company often has some responsibility for the operation of the truck and the behavior of their driver. As your truck accident injury lawyer, we will expose the trucking company's negligence. They may have cut corners in the safety of the vehicle, failed to complete a vehicle inspection, hired a driver with a known history of traffic violations or pushed the driver to drive long distances with little rest in order to meet a quota.

The Truck Owner

When the trucking company does not own their trucks but has access to them for the truck drivers to operate, the owner of the vehicle may be liable for causing your accident. We can hold the truck owner accountable for failures related to maintaining and inspecting the vehicle and components on the vehicle.

Manufacturers and Mechanics

Sometimes, truck accidents happen because of a mechanical failure or equipment breakdown. Defective products on the vehicle such as brake lines, tires, airbags or the engine can malfunction and cause an accident. If a maintenance professional in charge of inspecting or repairing the vehicle makes an error, they could be responsible too. Your truck accident injury lawyer will get to the bottom of things and hold the right individuals or companies responsible.

The Shipping Company

When cargo is improperly loaded, accidents can happen. The weight on the vehicle might be unevenly distributed or the load might not be properly secured. Due to their size, a major weight imbalance has the power to flip a tractor-trailer over. Loose products can fall off the truck and spill onto the highway, which is dangerous on many levels.

Public Entities

If your truck accident happened because of infrastructure that was poorly designed or poorly maintained, your truck accident injury lawyer may help you make a claim against a public entity such as the Missouri Department of Transportation. If a guardrail suddenly swings into the road or a substantial crack in the concrete causes a vehicle to go airborne, causing a chain reaction until you get in a crash, your truck accident attorneys will help you hold the local organization responsible for that property accountable.
