Who Could Share Responsibility in a Tractor Trailer Wreck?

Tractor trailer wrecks can be catastrophic, resulting in serious injuries or even fatalities. When such an accident occurs, it is often difficult to determine who is at fault. In some cases, multiple parties may share responsibility for the accident.

Conley Griggs Partin, LLP, in Atlanta, takes a closer look at who could share the responsibility for a tractor trailer wreck and possibly be named in a personal injury lawsuit.

The Tractor Trailer Driver

The driver of the tractor trailer is often the first person to be blamed for an accident. If they were driving recklessly or under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they could be held responsible for the accident.

The Trucking Company

Trucking companies have a legal obligation to ensure that their drivers are properly trained and that their vehicles are well-maintained. If they fail to do so, they could be held liable for any accidents that occur.

The Manufacturer of the Tractor Trailer or Its Parts

If a defect in the tractor trailer or its parts caused the accident, the manufacturer could be held responsible. For instance, if a tire blowout caused the driver to lose control of the vehicle, the tire manufacturer could be held accountable.

Other Drivers on the Road

Sometimes, other drivers on the road contribute to tractor trailer accidents. For example, if a car cuts off a large truck, causing it to swerve and hit another vehicle, the car driver could be held responsible.

Government Entities

In some cases, the government may share responsibility for a tractor trailer accident. For instance, if the road was poorly maintained or there were inadequate signs warning of a construction zone, the government entity responsible for maintaining the road could be held liable.

Cargo Loaders

Improperly loaded cargo can cause a tractor trailer to become unstable or tip over. In such cases, the cargo loaders could be held responsible for the accident.

Maintenance and Repair Providers

Tractor trailers require regular maintenance and repairs to ensure their safety on the road. If a maintenance or repair provider fails to properly maintain or repair a large truck, they could be held liable for any accidents that occur as a result.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
