Are Truck Drivers Liable for My Injury If They Cause an Accident?

Both truck drivers and their companies are liable for your injuries if they caused an accident. Many accidents are caused by trucks each day. To prove a truck driver caused your accident and is liable, you need to judge the drivers conduct against what a skilled truck driver should do. As an example, if a truck driver is swinging wide on a turn and does not use a signal, they will be liable for cutting off a vehicle in the right lane, because a normal prudent truck driver has been trained to know that cars will move into that lane if there is no signal by the truck driver.

Also trucks cannot travel to close to you on the road. It takes a lot longer for a truck to stop that for you to stop. Therefore they should leave more room to slow and stop for traffic ahead of them.

Truck companies go to the accident scenes early and try to interview witnesses. That is why you never want to be without your own protection, an OC truck accident attorney that can make sure your version of the accident is supported by witnesses and the police department.

You were wonderful throughout my case. Thank you so much for taking the time to explain the process so that I could feel comfortable. When I was hurt, I really did not know where to turn and Suzanne was comforting and knowledgable. Thanks again for all you did.
