Liability with Respect to Truck Accidents

Liable parties in truck accidents are parties who are found to have legal responsibility for their contributions to the accident and can be sued in court for money damages. In Massachusetts truck accidents or tractor trailer collisions, there are multiple individuals and entities that may be liable to you for your injuries. Our expert Boston, Massachusetts truck accident personal injury attorneys have substantial experience and skill in determining the responsible parties for your injuries. The parties who may be responsible to you for monetary damages include:

The driver of the truck. Numerous truck accidents are caused by some form of negligence on the part of the individual who was operating the truck at the time of the accident.

The employer of the truck driver. In Massachusetts, employers are vicariously liable for any injuries sustained in truck accidents caused by their employees while they are acting within the scope and course of their employment.

The owner of the truck. This can include the trucking company, a waste management company, a shipment company or a construction company. When there is an accident involving a commercial truck, the owner of that truck is frequently found to be liable. In the case of semi trucks, which usually have both a cab and a trailer, there may be more than one company involved, all of whom may be liable for injuries sustained in the accident.

The manufacturer of the truck, trailer or any parts of the truck. In the case of a defect in the manufacture or design of the truck, or any part thereof, manufacturing companies may be held responsible for any injuries or wrongful death that occurs as a result of the defective truck or part.

The drivers and owners of other vehicles. Many times, truck accidents involve multiple motor vehicles. This means that it may be possible to sue other drivers for your damages. If it is determined that another driver was also at fault in the accident, injured parties may be able to recover damages from those drivers’ auto insurance policies. If the fault is attributed to a defective motor vehicle, or a defective part of a vehicle, or even if a defective product just worsens the injuries, the motor vehicle manufacturer may also be held liable.

The third party maintenance company. As a result of wear and tear, trucks frequently need repairs and routine maintenance to remain in appropriate working condition. If a third-party maintenance company was responsible for maintaining any part of the truck, and a truck accident occurs as a result of maintenance that is proven inadequate, the law holds those companies responsible for any injuries sustained.
