Who Can Be Held Responsible for a Commercial or Big Truck Accident?
This is one of the reasons that big truck accidents are more complex and complicated. There can be a variety of people and companies that can be held liable in the event of an accident when someone is hurt in a truck wreck. Whether it is your local delivery pick up truck or the semi 18 wheeler going down the interstate, there is more than just the driver to be held responsible.
In most truck accident cases there can be many responsible parties such as:
- The driver
- The owner of the truck
- The employer
- The supervisor
- The loader of the truck
- The mechanic
- The inspector
