Who is Considered Liable For a Trucking Crash?

by Staff | March 23rd, 2020

After a motor vehicle accident, getting much-needed compensation is the most pressing concern for victims and their loved ones—especially when the crashes were caused by negligent or reckless drivers. Victims often face resistance from the insurance company, but when there’s sufficient proof that shows they weren’t at fault and that they were seriously injured in the crash, there’s a good chance they’ll get a fair settlement.

However, when one of the vehicles involved in the crash is a tractor-trailer, the stakes suddenly become much higher, and the insurance company will fight much harder to deny responsibility and avoid paying a settlement. That’s because truck accidents typically cause significantly more damage and more severe injuries due to trucks’ weight and size, leaving victims in need of greater compensation. In addition, multiple parties may be considered liable—and all of them may deny responsibility.

While it’s important to get an experienced law firm on your side after any type of injury, having an Indiana truck accident attorney build your claim can greatly boost your chances of winning, particularly when a large settlement is on the line. And at Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin, our attorneys have years of experience building, presenting, defending, and winning truck accident claims for victims just like you.

Pursing a truck accident injury claim requires experience, patience, persistence, and knowledge. In addition, it requires juggling communication with multiple insurance adjusters and representatives who may represent several parties who can be held partially or fully liable for the crash.

Unlike other auto accident claims, truck accident claims are rarely cut and dry. Liability may be split unevenly across multiple parties, all of which may deny responsibility and refuse to pay you the money you and your loved ones need. Many truck accident victims simply give up out of frustration or helplessness, but we won’t let that happen to you. Our attorneys don’t let liable parties and their insurers get away with not having to pay for their negligence.
