How Truck Accident Cases Are Different

Although proving a breach of duty, causation, and damages is essential in any personal injury case, there is a unique aspect to truck accident cases — the issue of liability. 

Truck accidents have several potential sources of liability, such as:

  • The trucking company that hired an unqualified driver
  • The insurance company that failed to use due diligence during the hiring process and approved the hiring of unqualified drivers
  • Freelance drivers who own their trucks and contract with several companies
  • Brokers working between trucking and shipping firms
  • The equipment supplier in cases involving equipment failure
  • The shipping company responsible for packing the load, if the accident occurred due to spilled products
  • A third-party vehicle that caused the accident

All possibilities need to be considered and pinpointed accurately. It’s important to hire an experienced Pensacola truck accidents attorney who understands this unique dynamic and can present a strong case in court.

Proving Liability in a Truck Accident Lawsuit

During discovery, the plaintiff's attorney can request documents and other relevant records from the target defendant. The legal process of discovery is vital in any lawsuit, but truck accident discovery can be a world unto its own. 

Trucking is typically involved in interstate commerce and thus governed by federal law, specifically the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act. This Act includes detailed regulations that the trucking industry must follow. 

An experienced Pensacola truck accidents lawyer can compare the records obtained in discovery to the federal law requirements and look for discrepancies. Any violation can indicate a breach of duty, which makes the defendant liable.
