Truck Accident Lawyers in Sebring

Fighting to Hold Liable Parties Responsible

A truck accident is one of the most devastating, life-altering events a person can endure. Due to the immense size and weight of large semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, and other commercial vehicles, these accidents are often fatal. Even when victims do survive, they are likely to suffer catastrophic injuries, permanently affecting nearly every aspect of their lives.

At Dismuke Law, we understand the far-reaching impact truck accidents have, not only on victims but on their families and loved ones as well. Our Sebring truck accident lawyers know how to investigate these types of accidents in order to determine how they occurred and who is liable. We also realize that you need compensation for your immediate damages and future losses, which is why we take into account the full projected lifetime costs of your injuries and damages when building your case. Led by Florida Bar Board Certified Civil Trial Law Attorney David C. Dismuke, our firm has the resources, skills, and expertise to fight for you and your recovery.

Liability in Truck Accident Cases

Truck accident claims are not like other types of motor vehicle accident cases, like those involving cars and motorcycles. The main reason for this is the issue of liability. Just like in other types of motor vehicle accident claims, your truck accident case is dependent on proving that another person or party was liable for the accident. However, establishing who, exactly, is liable can be very complicated.

Because truck drivers are in the employment of trucking companies, they may not be solely liable for accidents they cause while on duty. Under respondeat superior laws, employers are liable for the actions of their employees while those employees are on the clock or otherwise conducting work that benefits the employer (with very limited exceptions). As a result, even if a truck driver ostensibly causes a crash, his or her employer may be liable for your damages.

Additionally, truck accidents are often caused by other outside factors, such as faulty truck parts or lack of truck maintenance. Even dangerous road design or construction can lead to a devastating crash. When this is the case, you may be able to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim against another third party.

Some of the potential liable parties in a given truck accident case include:

  • The truck driver
  • The trucking company
  • The person/party responsible for truck maintenance
  • A supervisor
  • A hiring entity
  • A truck/truck part manufacturer
  • A construction company
  • A road maintenance company

This is not an exhaustive list; other additional parties could be partially or wholly liable for a truck accident, depending on the unique circumstances of the case. As you can see, these claims can become very complex very quickly; it’s important that you work with an experienced truck accident attorney who knows how to investigate every potential source of compensation and work to secure the maximum recovery you need and deserve.
