How Do I Prove Fault for a Truck Accident?

Liability for an 18-wheeler accident will depend on how that crash was caused. Typically, fault for these wrecks will lie with one or more of the following parties:

  • Motorists, including truck drivers, passenger vehicle drivers, motorcyclists, and others
  • Trucking companies, brokers, and/or shippers
  • Vehicle equipment manufacturers and/or vehicle service technicians
  • Cities, counties, and/or crew responsible for road construction and/or maintenance

To figure out and prove which party (or parties) are at fault, this (and other) evidence can be essential:

  • Pictures of the accident scene
  • Witness statements
  • Trucker and motor carrier records
  • Records from electronic onboard records
  • Dashcam footage
  • Cellphone records
  • Police reports
  • Toxicology reports
  • Expert witness opinions

How Long Will Does It Take to Resolve Truck Accident Cases?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. The complexity of the case, the available evidence, and much more can affect how quickly truck wreck claims are resolved.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, a Fort Smith truck accident lawyer can represent you even if you're from another state. Truck accidents involving interstate travel are common, and local attorneys are equipped to handle the complexities of state and federal laws that may apply.
If you are contacted by the trucking company or their insurance representative, it is best to refrain from providing any detailed statements or accepting any settlements before speaking with your attorney. Anything you say can be used to undermine your claim, and early settlement offers may not fully compensate for your damages. Always consult with your lawyer who can handle communications and negotiations on your behalf.
Understanding your rights after a truck accident is fundamental to ensuring justice and compensation. Contact us for a confidential consultation where we can discuss your case specifics and outline your legal options.
