Who May Be Liable for a Tractor Trailer Accident?
Tractor trailers can weigh up to 80,000 pounds and be up to 75 feet in length. Inadequate maintenance on the vehicle, improperly loaded cargo, and reckless or aggressive driving behaviors result in thousands of accidents each year. A detailed investigation is necessary to determine who is liable for a tractor-trailer accident.
Depending on the situation, a variety of parties may be held liable for a tractor-trailer accident:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company
- The cargo loading crew
- The third-party maintenance company
Improper maintenance could result in faulty brakes, malfunctioning steering mechanisms, inadequate tire tread, and other hazardous conditions. Due to their large size, tractor trailers require a lot of distance to stop. They are also at greater risk for tipping over than passenger vehicles. If the maintenance company failed to perform necessary repairs and maintenance, or the cargo loading crew overloaded or failed to properly secure the cargo, they may be held liable for an accident.
In addition, the truck driver and trucking company must comply with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations. These include strict hiring practices, maintenance requirements, and mandatory rest breaks. Truck drivers also must perform an inspection of the vehicle before and after each trip, and avoid reckless driving behaviors, such as speeding, swerving between lanes, failing to use turn signals, making wide turns, and tailgating other vehicles.

Do not assume the insurance company is looking out for your best interest. They are in the business of making money, not giving it away. They can make you a low-ball offer or deny your claim all together. Contact Savannah's Personal Injury Law Firm to get a free evaluation of your case.
