Who Can Be Held Liable?
The trucking company overseeing the driver, truck, and cargo will most likely be liable, or legally responsible, for your damages. Federal laws hold trucking companies liable for accidents involving their drivers and trucks even if the driver is an independent contractor and the company leases the truck. Other potentially liable parties could include a truck manufacturer, property owner, the City of Columbia for a dangerous roadway, a third-party driver or a combination of parties.
How Much Can I Recover for a Truck Accident?
Once our attorneys have helped you identify the appropriate party as the defendant, we can begin the fight for a fair amount of compensation for your economic and noneconomic losses. The law may entitle you and your family to recover a financial award from a defendant for your vehicle repair or replacement, pain, and suffering, emotional anguish, lost wages, disability costs, disfigurement, lost quality of life, legal fees, medical bills, and more. Our lawyers can evaluate the value of your case for free, then take action on your family’s behalf to fight for an amount we believe is fair and reasonable.
