Liability for Commercial Truck Wrecks in Montgomery
A lot of components go into the care and maintenance of a commercial truck. That means a significant number of people in the trucking industry can fail in their duties in some way and cause a truck crash in Montgomery.
Most often, the truck driver is the first to be examined for blame. Any indication of distracted driving, driving under the influence, fatigued driving, or aggressive driving practices could mean the trucker carries liability for your injuries.
Along with the trucker, the trucking company could play a part in the cause of the crash if it failed to follow the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s regulations for the scheduling of a truck driver.
Truckers are known for driving across multiple states and working long hours, but they do have limitations, just like any other employee. If they were scheduled for longer shifts than legally allowed, or if they were not given the appropriate number of days off between shifts, the trucking company can come under fire in your personal injury claim.
The technicians and manufacturers who are responsible for maintaining the safety of the 18-wheeler, as well as the cargo loaders, can all face liability if they installed defective parts, installed parts incorrectly, or failed to secure cargo in accordance with industry standards.
Essentially, anyone who plays a part in the overall safety of the semi-truck could potentially have done something or failed to do something that eventually resulted in your truck accident. Your Montgomery commercial truck wreck attorney will be able to determine who or what caused the crash and name the appropriate party in your personal injury claim.

Because your injuries are probably serious, you will have a good chance of recovering significant compensation for your claim.
