Truck Accident Liability

Proudly Representing Chattanooga and nearby areas of Tennessee, Alabama & Georgia

Establishing truck accident liability requires a great deal of time for gathering evidence and investigating your claim. Unlike car accident litigation, which is often disputed between drivers, truck accident cases can have several liable parties to consider.

If you need an experienced truck accident attorney to represent your rights in Chattanooga, call (423) 443-3973 to schedule a free consultation with Mr. Thornbury today.

Liable Parties Involved

In many truck accident claims, there a number of potentially liable parties that may be held responsible for damages including:

  • The truck driver
  • The trucking agency and/or cargo company
  • The manufacturer of the truck or truck parts
  • Government road authorities (in the event that your accident was a result of road defects or disrepair)

The most challenging part of your claim will come after you identify all of the potentially liable parties, and it's time to determine who will actually be held responsible for the damages.

Proving Truck Accident Liability

Proving legal liability in a truck-related accident requires a substantial amount of investigation and documentation that will need to be recovered and analyzed. Gathering the appropriate evidence in a timely and appropriate manner is crucial to the success of your claim.

The unfortunate reality is that in many cases, important evidence can often be overlooked or can even go missing. Not all companies like to play by the rules, so it's important to have an attorney on your side who understands the laws and can fight for your rights.

Our experienced truck accident attorney will get the information you need when you need it to ensure that nothing falls through the cracks when it comes to securing evidence and establishing liability.
