Greenville Truck Accident Lawyers
Aggressive Advocacy for the Injured
Were you in an accident with a tractor-trailer that caused severe injuries? Proving who is at fault in truck accidents is a complicated process. If the driver is at fault, it could be that they had been on the road too long or have a history of substance or alcohol abuse.
In some cases, the condition of the truck is subpar because of incomplete maintenance logs, and in others, the truck load is overweight or unbalanced. In the latter two situations, the trucking company or its client may be at fault.

Who is Liable in a Commercial Truck Accident
An investigation is usually launched to determine what party or parties can be held liable for a truck accident. Unlike most car accidents, there are several possible parties who can be held liable for a truck accident.
Often an investigation will find the trucking company liable since they are often caught encouraging their drivers to break trucking regulations in order to help save the company time and money.
It is possible for a trucker to be held responsible for an accident. For example, if a driver owns their own truck or if the accident was a direct result of their own negligence, such as drinking while driving.
It’s also possible for the truck manufacturer to be held liable for your injuries if an accident was caused by a defect in the manufacturing. Whatever the cause of your accident, our firm has the knowledge and skill to identify the appropriate party and fight for you. Call us today to learn more about how we can help you.
