Who Is At Fault In A California Truck Accident?

You may think that only the truck driver is to blame for your accident. But at Rosenthal & Kreeger LLP, we know there may be numerous parties at fault. When you hire us to represent you, we do a thorough investigation to determine all responsible parties.

Those who may be held accountable for your truck accident include:

  • Truck driver — Did the driver fall asleep? Is the driver properly licensed? Was the driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol?
  • Trucking company — Did the company force the driver to drive under unsafe conditions? Did it properly maintain the truck? Did it ensure the truck was properly inspected?
  • Truck manufacturers — Was the truck built with defective parts? Were all manufacturing codes adhered to? Was the truck properly built?
  • Truck repair companies — Did they make all necessary repairs? Were repairs made to appropriate specifications? Did they allow an unsafe vehicle on the road?
  • Cargo manufacturer — Was the cargo properly loaded onto the truck? Was the correct type of truck used to transport the cargo? Did something happen to the cargo during transport that affected the driver's ability to control the truck?
  • Roadway authorities — What was the condition of the roadway? Were the roads properly maintained?
  • Other drivers — Who else was on the road? Could another reckless driver have caused the truck to hit you?
