How Will an Attorney Help a Highlands Ranch Truck Accident Claim?

Truck accident claims in Highlands Ranch often become incredibly complicated for victims to handle on their own. The reality is that these claims cannot be handled like regular vehicle accidents. There are typically many other parties involved, including trucking companies and their legal teams as well as aggressive insurance carriers. All these other parties will be looking to limit the liability of the driver or the truck company.

A Highlands Ranch truck accident lawyer will level the playing field and be able to conduct their own investigation into the incident on behalf of the injury victims. They will work to recover the evidence needed to prove liability, vigorously negotiate with aggressive insurance carriers, and fully prepare to take the case to trial if necessary.

Who Can Be Held Liable for a Truck Accident in Highlands Ranch?

There may be various parties who can be held liable in the aftermath of a truck accident in Highlands Ranch.

Truck drivers have tremendous responsibilities on the roadway. Unfortunately, truck driver actions often lead to severe accidents. Some of the most common causes of truck crashes caused by a driver include the following:

  • Operating while impaired by alcohol or drugs
  • Operating while distracted by a phone or another device
  • Operating too fast for conditions
  • Failing to obey traffic laws
  • Failing to properly inspect the truck
  • Operating beyond the allowable hours of service requirements

When it is discovered that a truck driver caused a crash, liability will typically fall back onto the employer, so long as the crash occurred when the driver was carrying out job-related duties. Additionally, the trucking company can also be held directly responsible if any of the following actions caused the crash:

  • Failure to properly inspect and maintain each vehicle per FMCSA requirements
  • Failing to adequately train new drivers
  • Failing to conduct background checks on new drivers
  • Encourage drivers to operate beyond their allowable hours of service
  • Encouraging the overloading of trucks
