Who Can be Held Responsible for my Truck Accident?
As with most vehicle collisions, there could be multiple reasons and potentially involve a number of different individuals. In the case of a tractor-trailer accident, especially one in which there was overloaded freight involved, many different parties could be held responsible. Depending on how the cargo was loaded and shipped, everyone from the driver to the dock manager, and even the owner of the trucking company, could face legal trouble.
Who Should I Speak With Concerning my Accident?
In the days and weeks following your accident, there will be a number of officials and law enforcement types who will wish to speak with you. This is to be expected and any statements you provide will only help their investigation. However, beyond the authorities, we highly recommend avoiding any other interested parties, namely insurance companies and their adjustors. Their job is to collect as much damning information as possible and use it against you during the subsequent settlement.
Remember - insurance companies, especially ones working for a trucking firm, are looking to save as much money as possible. Their bottom line is the primary concern, with your health and well being much further down the list. Avoid their calls and requests at all costs!
