Do You Have a Trucking Accident Lawsuit?

Personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits are civil claims which seek accountability from defendants who cause preventable losses as a result of their negligent or wrongful acts.

In the trucking industry, where there’s an incentive to ship more and ship faster, there are many forms of negligence and violations which can cause crashes and give rise to civil claims. Examples include:

  • Overloaded trucks and unsecured cargo
  • Negligent hiring or retention of dangerous truck drivers
  • Substance abuse / drugged or drunk driving
  • Trucker fatigue / Hours-of-Service violations
  • Failure to maintain or repair trucks
  • Truck tire blowouts, brake failure, and defective auto parts

Determining whether you have a potential claim for compensation requires meticulous investigation into the accident, the parties involved, and fault and liability. At KCB, we have the resources to perform needed investigations, gather evidence, reconstruct accidents, and work with relevant experts whose insight can be leveraged to prove the negligence of at-fault parties.

How Much Are Truck Accident Lawsuits Worth?

The value of any truck accident case is dependent on the unique facts of a crash, as well as the economic and non-economic damages victims suffered. Some factors that influence case value include:

  • The nature and severity of injuries
  • Permanent disabilities, impairments, and disfigurement
  • The length of physical recovery / lasting disabilities or impairment
  • Medical bills, including emergency treatment, hospitalization, and rehabilitation
  • Future medical expenses, including costs associated with permanent injuries
  • Lost wages, and lost future earnings
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional suffering and mental anguish

Calculating the full scope of damages suffered by victims is critical to securing the compensation needed to cover losses already incurred, and losses that can be reasonably expected in the future, such as costs associated with needed medical care or disability accommodations.

Fatal Truck Accidents

Tractor-trailer accidents pose greater risks of catastrophic and fatal injuries than standard motor vehicle crashes. That is especially true when certain factors are involved, including:

Victims who lose loved ones in trucking collisions may have the right to seek compensation by pursuing wrongful death lawsuits. These complex and emotionally charged claims are contested aggressively by trucking companies and their insurance carriers, as they commonly work to deny or underpay families. At KCB, we have a proven record of success fighting for families in a range of wrongful death actions, and can assist yours in pursuing the justice you deserve.

Who Can Be Held Liable for Truck Accidents?

Trucking accident liability can be a much more challenging issue than in typical car accident cases. That’s not only because truck drivers are often employed by companies, but also because other parties involved in commercial trucking or the accident itself may be solely or partially at fault.

Examples of parties that may be liable for a trucking accident:

  • A truck driver who negligently operated their vehicle;
  • Drivers of another vehicle involved in the crash;
  • Trucking companies that violated federal trucking regulations, failed to properly screen or supervise their employees, or committed other negligent acts;
  • Maintenance or repair companies responsible for vehicle upkeep;
  • Manufacturers of commercial trucks or faulty / defective auto parts;
  • Government entities or public utilities that failed to maintain safe roadways;
