Who is Liable After a Truck Accident?

After a truck accident, it can be difficult to determine who is liable, as it is not always the truck driver. In fact, the party most often held legally responsible is the trucking company. There are many reasons for this, but the main one is that trucking companies are often caught encouraging their drivers to break truck driving laws and regulations in order to save their company time, money or both.

In some situations, the truck driver can be held liable, especially if the accident was caused directly by their negligence, or they are the owner of the truck they are driving. Although it happens less often, there are other parties that can be found responsible for your injuries such as a truck manufacturer or cargo loading team.

Understanding Truck Driver Regulations

Because semi-trucks can be so dangerous in the event of an accident, truck drivers are required to follow many more rules, and regulations than other motor vehicles on the road. One of the most well known of these regulations is called the hours of service regulation. According to these rules:

  • Truck drivers can work up to a maximum of 14 hours in a day but can only drive for 11 of these hours. The remaining time must be spent on rest breaks or meal breaks.
  • Drivers must rest for a minimum of 10 consecutive hours before beginning a new workday
  • Truck drivers are required to take days off work at regular intervals. These interval time periods are dependent on the hours of the trucking company the work for.

Why Do I Need A Truck Accident Lawyer?
