If you have been injured in a truck accident, one of the first steps toward recovery of damages is identifying prospective defendants in your case. In other words, who was responsible for causing the accident and who will be sued by you and your Los Angeles truck accident attorney?
While there may be multiple parties that can be held liable for your injuries and damages arising from a truck accident in California, it is critical to understand that both small and big-name trucking companies employ certain dishonest tactics to shield themselves from liability and prevent victims from filing a personal injury lawsuit against them.
Today, our best truck accident attorney at the Compass Law Group, P.C., is going to outline a non-exhaustive list of parties that can be held liable in your claim or lawsuit:
Only an experienced Truck Accident Attorney in Los Angeles can identify all liable parties in your particular case, determine liability, and evaluate the cost of your injuries and damages.
In most truck accidents, the at-fault truck driver and his/her trucking company are held liable, though it may not always be possible to file a lawsuit against the trucking company if it shields itself from liability by using third party logistics companies.
This is a common practice in Los Angeles and all across California that prevents victims of truck accidents from recovering damages, as independent contractors are given protections against liability in trucking accidents in California. Time and time again, our skilled lawyers at the Compass Law Group, PC, have succeeded at holding trucking companies accountable for their negligence, recklessness, and violations of laws and trucking regulations.
