Determining Fault in Truck Accidents

A key factor in getting at the truth of a trucking accident is determining who was at fault. Our law firm benefits from the skills of our in-house investigator. A former police officer, he now focuses on providing us with detailed analyses of truck and other motor vehicle accidents. His analysis allows us to build a strong case for truck accident claims.

We are dedicated to learning the truth about your truck accident

After an accident, the truck driver and the trucking company usually have an economic incentive to have the accident determined to be the fault of the other driver. The truck driver's livelihood may be at stake, and the truck company and its insurer may have to pay a significant sum to resolve the claim. Trucking companies and truck drivers may be uncooperative when talking with accident investigators, police, and insurance adjusters. Despite these deterrents, we do the work necessary to determine who was at fault so that we can move forward with your liability claim.

Our experience shows that truck accident fault can generally be assigned to one of a handful of individuals or entities, including

  • The truck driver
  • The truck company
  • The company supplying or loading the trailer
  • The independent truck maintenance contractor
  • The jurisdiction where the accident occurred
  • The manufacturer of the truck or of associated equipment

If you have suffered a serious trucking injury, you need an attorney who will do the work necessary to identify the person or organization at fault in your accident. At the Law Firm of Alton C. Todd, we are known for our willingness to take on the often tedious work of determining the at-fault party. Put that to work for you. Contact our Friendswood law office to learn how we can help.
