Understanding who is liable for a trucking accident can be confusing because there are several people who could be held liable. Here is a list of people that could be at fault in a trucking incident:
- the driver of the truck/trailer
- the owner of the truck/trailer
- the company that leased the truck/trailer
- the manufacturer, and
- the freight loader
According to Nolo.com, the trucking, hauling, and leasing companies argue over who is to blame when it comes time to pay the victim. The best way to receive the compensation you are entitled is to contact an attorney.
