Who Is Responsible for a Dallas Truck Accident?
A major consideration when a Dallas truck accident occurs is determining
what party or parties are responsible for the incident. The reality is
that in most semi accidents, more than one party is responsible for causing
the accident in the first instance. Identifying all of the parties responsible
for causing a truck accident can prove to be a challenging task. Because
of the complexities inherent in a semi accident case, you best protect
your legal interests by engaging the services of a skilled, tenacious,
and experienced Dallas truck accident lawyer.
Examples of parties typically deemed responsible for a commercial truck
collision include a big rig operator. Common reasons why a semi driver
may be considered negligent and responsible for causing an accident include:
- Distracted driving (talking on the phone)
- Impaired driving (operating a rig while drunk)
- Reckless driving (like speeding in a school zone)
- Improper lane change
There is an array of other types of conduct by a driver that cause accidents
for which a rig operator bears legal responsibility.
The trucking company is also likely to be a responsible party when it comes
to a semi-truck accident. Legally speaking, an employer is responsible
for injuries caused by an employee that occur during the course of employment.
Other parties responsible for a Dallas truck accident include:
- Semi maintenance provider
- Truck manufacturer
- Truck parts manufacturer
An example of a semi-truck accident can explain how multiple parties can
be responsible for the incident and resulting injuries, damages, and losses.
A semi-truck motoring in Dallas has a part that malfunctions. The malfunction
will result in the truck running off course if it is not slowed down in
a timely manner. Unfortunately, at the time of the malfunction the big
rig operator is distracted by talking on his phone. In such a scenario,
the driver, trucking company, parts manufacturer, and truck manufacturer
are all likely to be parties that share in responsibility for the semi-truck accident.
A case involving multiple responsible parties typically necessitates pursuing
claims with different insurance companies. A well-trained and tenacious
Dallas truck accident lawyer is in the best position to effectively pursue
these types claims. In addition, if the need arises, a skilled lawyer
has the background and resources necessary to file a personal injury lawsuit
against multiple responsible parties.
