Who is Liable in A Truck Accident?
In a truck crash case, you may have grounds to bring a claim against the truck driver, his employer, an auto parts manufacturer, or another party, depending on what caused the accident. Our truck accident lawyers have the experience to identify the proper party in an accident case and to take on the largest corporations and insurers.
Gathering Evidence to Support Your Claim
Even if you did not contribute to your accident, an insurance company might still dispute your claim. For instance, insurers may argue that your injuries are not as severe as you have stated or that you have failed to mitigate your damages. Still others may claim that you were partially at fault for the wreck. Strong evidence is essential to rebutting these claims.
Our Inglewood truck accident lawyers are prepared to gather strong evidence by launching a thorough investigation. In many cases, we hire expert witnesses to recreate the accident scene and to the minutes leading up to the crash.
In addition, your lawyer may seek the following evidence:
- The Accident Report: This document contains details about when and where the accident occurred. It will also include a police officer’s opinion about who caused the collision and how it may have happened.
- Vehicle Maintenance Records: Defective auto parts and equipment failure are common causes of trucking accidents. Often, these defects are the result of a truck driver’s negligence, for instance, failing to have a vehicle regularly inspected. As such, maintenance records can supply a key piece of evidence in support of your claim that someone’s negligence caused the wreck.
- Dashcam Footage: Many truckers install dashboard cameras. Our attorneys will find out whether the truck involved in your accident had a dashcam and will attempt to access its footage for insight into what may have caused the wreck.
- Photos: Photographs of the accident scene can help your lawyer piece together what happened in the moments leading up to the crash.
