Truck Accident Victims

A single tractor trailer accident can have numerous victims.

It is not unusual for multiple family members to be injured or killed in truck accident, creating not only tremendous grief, but extreme financial hardship for survivors.

Multi-car pileups, accidents compromising overpasses and bridges, and those involving hazardous materials can injure or kill people in multiple vehicles, as well as bystanders, pedestrians and others.

Truck accident victims can include:

  • Drivers and passengers in vehicles involved in a collision with a truck
  • Vehicle occupants who were not in a direct collision with the truck itself but were injured in a multicar accident involving the truck
  • Vehicle occupants and others injured in overpass or bridge collapse caused by a truck accident
  • Victims struck by objects or vehicles flying off of a bridge or overpass as a result of a truck accident or improperly secured load
  • Truck driver and passengers
  • Pedestrians
  • Bystanders
  • People injured in buildings struck by a truck or affected by a truck fire explosion or hazardous materials spill
  • Owners of property damaged by a truck accident, including damage caused by hazardous materials

Truck Accident Liability

The trucking industry is governed by complex state and federal regulations. Trucking companies have extensive legal duties and can be held liable for trucking accidents stemming from failure to live up to those duties. Even when truck driver error causes an accident the trucking company can be held liable if it failed to properly screen, train, or monitor the driver. Trucking companies can be held liable for failure to properly inspect and maintain their trucks.

One or more of the following may be liable for your trucking accident injuries:

  • Trucking company
  • Freight shipper
  • Freight broker
  • Third party logistics provider (3PL)
  • Manufacturer of defective truck, parts, or equipment
  • Seller of defective truck, parts, or equipment
  • Truck leasing company
  • Third party contracted to perform maintenance or repairs
  • Truck driver
  • Another negligent driver
  • Weigh station or personnel
  • Government entity responsible for design, construction and/or maintenance of defective roadway
