Who Is Liable for My Truck Accident Charleston?
Liability is important to determine in truck accidents in Charleston and throughout South Carolina. In many instances, the truck driver is liable for the accident and the injuries you suffered. Sometimes a police report will designate the “responsible” party, however, that does not necessarily determine liability.
For example, the truck drivers employer may also be liable. Truck drivers and their employers must comply with certain federal motor carrier laws and regulations. Failing to comply with these regulations can help show liability. For example, perhaps the truck driver had a history of speeding or distracted driving, but the employer failed to run a background check and still put this dangerous driver on the road. This negligent action – the employer failing to research its driver and putting a dangerous driver on the road – is just one example of when an employer could be negligent for the accident.
An experienced and qualified Charleston truck accident attorney can properly evaluate your claim to determine liability and get the most money for your damages.
