A rig driver who elects to break the law and speed while operating a commercial truck is a party that will be deemed responsible for an accident caused as a result of this conduct. The driver is not the only responsible party when it comes to injuries you may have sustained in a speeding truck accident.
The owner of the truck or the trucking company will also bear legal responsibility for your injuries, damages, and losses. There exist a principle in U.S. law known as agency. Through this legal doctrine, an employer is responsible for injuries caused to you by an employee when the conduct causing an accident occurs during the course of employment.
