Who is Responsible for Injuries in an Improper Maintenance Commercial Truck Accident?
A key task of an improper maintenance truck accident injury lawyer is identifying all of the parties potentially responsible for the accident and your injuries. This can be a far more complicated and challenging task than you might realize on first blush.
A commercial truck owner is required to maintain a maintenance log, which may provide useful evidence on the state of the vehicle and who is responsible for maintaining the rig. Other evidence will be developed by a member of our legal team that will identify potential responsible parties.
These may include:
- truck owner or cartage company
- third party maintenance provider
Financial Compensation in Your Truck Accident Injury Case
Odds are if you have been involved in an accident with a commercial semi-truck, your injuries and losses are significant. You must get full compensation, the money you need to get your life back on track.
The nature and extent of compensation in a commercial truck accident case depends on the facts surrounding the accident and the type of injuries and losses you sustained.
Nevertheless, these are losses that commonly are compensable in a truck accident claim:
- medical bills and expenses
- pain and suffering
- mental anguish and emotional distress
- permanent disability
- permanent disfigurement
- lost wages
- property damage
Because of the extent of your injuries, and other losses, you may face ongoing issues. For example, you very well may require ongoing medical care and treatment into the future, including physical therapy. You may not be able to return to your job any time soon.
