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.
