Potential Liable Parties in Texas Truck Accidents

Potential Liable Parties in Texas Truck Accidents

Truck accidents, especially commercial truck accidents, are different from other accidents involving only passenger cars because, in part, a trucking company usually employs the truck driver involved in the crash. As the trucker’s employer or carrier, it may be legally responsible for the upkeep of the truck and truck drivers’ actions.

In addition to a truck driver and the carrier, several other parties may be liable for a truck accident, including:

  • Manufacturer of the truck
  • Manufacturer of truck parts
  • Vendors providing services to the carrier (like loaders)
  • Owner of the cargo
  • Local government or contractors responsible for highway design or maintenance
