Truck Accidents More Complicated Than They Appear

Following a major accident, one of the most important questions that may be haunting you is “why?” Why did the life-altering collision occur? Who is at fault?

Accidents do not happen in a vacuum. Multiple circumstances – including mistakes or lapses in judgment – may have culminated in a tragedy. In truck accident cases, however, there is rarely a simple or straightforward answer to who was at fault. Often, a perfect storm of errors on the part of multiple parties created a situation ripe for disaster.

Experienced, Nationwide Representation For Victims Of Truck Accidents

Determining fault and causation in truck accident cases requires a thorough, in-depth investigation. Not only must evidence at the scene be gathered, but other information such as driver logs, maintenance records and the truck’s “black box” must be carefully analyzed. Once assembled and pieced together, the vast array of evidence may lead to answers.

At Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington, PLLC, in Louisville, our attorneys determine who may be responsible by conducting comprehensive investigations, including accident reconstruction and analysis. We work with world-renowned experts to help our clients uncover the answers they deserve. With more than 100 years of combined experience, our lawyers and staff have attained outstanding results for clients in tractor-trailer accident cases.

Thorough And Detail-Oriented Lawyers

When you entrust us with your case, we will leave no stone unturned in determining who was at fault. Depending on the circumstances, many parties may potentially be responsible, including:

  • The truck driver: In addition to the regular rules of the road, truck drivers are required to follow detailed regulations and safety protocols.
  • The trucking company: The truck driver’s employer may have failed to enforce safety regulations such as legal limits on the number of driving hours or routine maintenance and safety requirements.
  • Manufacturers: Multiple manufacturers – of the truck, the trailer and various components – can be held responsible for defective or dangerous products.
  • Other parties: The shipper, cargo company and even the carrier’s insurance company can potentially be held responsible in certain circumstances.

In many cases, the truck driver, trucking company and other defendants may try to cast fault on you. Even if you were at fault in some way, you can still obtain financial recovery if the fault of others also contributed to the accident.
