Is a trucker or a trucking company responsible for my costs?
It depends on the nature of your accident. Individual error, such as failing to use turn signals, “cutting off” other drivers, running red lights, speeding, and similar actions are often attributable to driver error. However, negligence at a higher level – the trucking company – might involve the failure to train employees adequately, using negligent hiring methods, failing to maintain vehicles, and forced hours of service violations. These distinctions might be hard for you to determine on your own, but this is why the help of an experienced Louisville attorney from the Sampson Law Firm can be so valuable.
