It is important to understand that even if you may have been partially to blame for your injurious circumstances that you may still be entitled to compensation at this time. If you were injured while engaged in work-related activities (driving a truck or not), you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits even if the accident was totally your fault. If you were not working at the time of your crash, you may still be able to hold other parties (individuals, companies, or even government agencies in charge of safe road maintenance) liable for their contributions to the cause(s) of your accident.
Determining Fault and Causation After a Truck Accident
It often takes time to uncover all of the contributing factors to the cause(s) of a crash. Once our legal team has thoroughly investigated your collision, we’ll be able to determine which party or parties may be held legally responsible for the harm that you have suffered. Generally speaking, if another’s negligent, reckless, or intentionally harmful conduct directly contributed to the cause(s) of your harm, you may hold them legally liable for the financial consequences of that harm.
Oftentimes, truck accident causation isn’t visible to the naked eye. Faulty auto or truck parts, inadequate truck driver training, and road imperfections—for example—don’t always make themselves immediately apparent in the wake of a crash. Don’t assume that you have no grounds upon which to file a civil suit until the causation and fault of your accident have been determined by a reputable law firm.
