Who Can Be Held Liable for a Trucking Accident in Massachusetts?

Establishing liability in a truck accident can be complicated. While these crashes sometimes only involve the truck driver, several parties may have contributed to the accident. However, understanding who may be held liable is critical to the success of your claim. A few parties that may bear fault for your accident include the following:

  • The truck driver
  • Cargo loaders
  • The trucking company
  • Manufacturers

Depending on your case circumstances, more than one party may be held accountable for your accident and subsequent injuries. Cases with multiple defendants can be legally dense, so it is in your best interest to partner with a skilled attorney. Your attorney will work to uncover all liable parties and fight to hold them fully accountable for their negligent actions.

Common Examples of Negligence in Massachusetts Truck Accidents

No two truck accidents are exactly alike, and they affect victims with varying levels of severity. Driving a large truck or 18-wheeler is different from operating a standard motor vehicle, and all truck drivers must undergo extensive training and obtain a commercial driver’s license (CDL). However, with an increased number of trucks on Massachusetts roads, truck accidents have become increasingly more common. Some common causes of truck accidents include the following:

  • Operating a truck while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Distracted driving
  • Poorly secured cargo
  • Speeding
  • Failure to abide by traffic laws
  • Merging without looking
  • Drowsy driving
  • Texting and driving

The negligent actions above can cause significant injuries for everyone involved. If you were injured in a truck accident, our attorneys can begin work on your case immediately to determine the cause of your accident as well as who may be held accountable for your losses.

Damages You May Be Eligible to Recover Through a Truck Accident Claim

Injuries from truck accidents may result in significant physical, emotional, and financial burdens. Through a truck accident claim, you can seek compensation for your financial expenses and other losses. Some of the many damages your Haverhill truck accident attorney may be able to help you seek include the following:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and earning potential
  • Significant disfigurement or disability
  • Emotional trauma
  • Pain and suffering

An experienced truck accident attorney from Sweeney Merrigan Personal Injury Lawyers can help truck accident victims seek the monetary compensation they need to heal and recover.
