Determining Liability in a Transportation Accident 

Through detailed investigation, trusted experts in the field, accident reconstruction, and other methods, we explore all potential sources of liability to build a comprehensive case in situations involving catastrophic injury or wrongful death. In transportation accident cases, there can be multiple sources of liability:

Driver Negligence

The driver of the vehicle may be at fault in the accident due to:

  • Distracted Driving
  • Impaired Driving
  • Fatigued Driving
  • Speeding

Trucking Company Liability

As an employer, any trucking or transportation company is responsible for ensuring operations occur safely. Instances of liability can include any of the following:

  • Negligent Hiring
  • Insufficient Training
  • Pressure to Violate Regulations
  • Poor Maintenance

Third-party Contractors

Independent contractors hired by a trucking company are responsible for their maintenance, compliance with transportation regulations, and upholding safety standards.

Maintenance Providers

Negligent repairs can impair a vehicle’s safe operation, resulting in a tragic accident.

Manufacturer Liability

We investigate all vehicles involved in a transportation accident to determine if there were defective parts or design flaws that caused or shared the cause of the accident.

Cargo Loading Companies

Companies that load cargo must follow specific guidelines and procedures to ensure it is properly loaded and secured for transportation. Improper loading can result in the driver losing control of the vehicle or objects flying into other traffic after coming loose.

Government Entities

Poor road conditions, poor signage, inadequate road design, and other aspects could result in accidents in which government entities share the liability for damages.

Other Drivers

Reckless or negligent driving by other drivers on the road may have contributed to the accident.
