Determining fault in a truck accident can be complex, as there may be multiple parties involved and federal regulations may come into play. Here are a few of the parties that may be at fault:
- The truck driver: If the truck driver was driving recklessly, distracted, fatigued, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they could be at fault for the accident.
- The trucking company: The trucking company could be at fault for the accident if they failed to properly maintain the truck, hired an unqualified or unsafe driver, or encouraged the driver to violate federal regulations.
- The manufacturer: If the accident was caused by a defect in the truck or its parts, the manufacturer could be at fault for the accident.
- Other drivers: Other drivers on the road could be at fault if they were driving recklessly or negligently and caused the accident.
- Government entities: In some cases, government entities such as state or local governments could be at fault if the accident was caused by poorly maintained roads or inadequate road signage.
