Six Simple Stepsfor Dealing with a Truck Accident

"If You Have Been Injured, What's Most Important Is That You Know Your Rights..."

"What people need to understand first and foremost is that the insurance company they're dealing with on the other side is not a charitable organization. They are not there to look out for the rights of the people who have been injured..."

"We're able to negotiate and resolve these claims at a much higher rate than somebody without a lawyer because ultimately the insurance company knows if they don't treat our clients fairly, we have the ability to take them to court and get a successful resolution there...."

Understanding the Cause of Your Accident Can Help You Collect

Knowing what caused a commercial trucking accident can help you identify who is at fault for your injuries and determine the best way to collect compensation

For example, if a truck driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the accident, they may be liable for your injuries. 

Our attorneys can investigate your accident and personalize a legal strategy to your specific needs and goals.

In 2016, the leading causes of crashes in Utah were:

However, there are additional causes when it comes to large trucks which can complicate your case, such as dangerous actions taken by the driver of a passenger vehicle or the commercial truck.

Determining Who Is at Fault  after a Commercial Truck Accident

The nature of trucking and the multiple parties involved in commercial trucking accidents make it difficult to determine who is liable for the accident.

In these accidents, the liability could fall on: 

  • The trucking company
  • The truck driver
  • The owner of the truck
  • The insurance company 
  • The manufacturer of the truck
  • The company who loaded the vehicle

Trucking companies are legally responsible for hiring, training, and employing their drivers under strict standards.

However, trucks and drivers are regularly contracted out to other companies to transport their goods, meaning a different party may be directly to blame for your injuries.

Our attorneys can identify all potentially liable parties and file the necessary number of lawsuits to ensure you receive the level of compensation you deserve.
