let’s get started

Which party or who is really responsible for this case?

Well to answer this question we may state that there are people, in particular, who are responsible for the scenario or crash. The truck driver who was driving the truck, the party who is connected to the crash or maybe has hit the truck, or the person who hired the truck driver.

Who should cover the expenses?

Well in this case the truck service provider will surely have insurance. That must be used to cover the insurance.

Why truck accidents and car accidents are do not have the same claim?

The first reason is that truck drivers are stated are professional drivers engaged with professional work that involves a particular company or brand. They are supposed to hold a higher degree of work experience. Also, cars are small objects used mainly for personal use. Whereas in the case of the truck this is required for carrying heavy metals, machines good, etc from one place to another which also involves a thirds party and ours.

Is the truck driver responsible or the brand concerned?

Well, this particular point is a very complicated point to answer. But as per our experience and law, the truck driver is mainly responsible for the scenario. To say both of them are in a way responsible. But the company can also say that they are responsible only for the damages that are caused.
Well, these were few common questions that we the Leon Legal Group often hear. There is always a chance of new questions arriving but here we have answered just a few common ones.

Points to look into before you file a case

Next moving forward we will discuss one of the most important points that everyone should know. That is how and what are the steps or to say specific points that one must know before they apply or file a case. If the truck company is in any kind of commerce and subject to federal motor carrier safety regulations then there has to be a certain time requirement in which they have kept documentation like driver log. As soon as the incident may take place one must surely inform the company so that they can bring or preserve all the documentation related to the truck as well as to the driver.
The federal motors carrier safety regulation has such a rule that drivers cannot be on duty at certain hours of the day. Or to say they have restricted duty hours per week. Before filing the case one must see that there were no log violations or other kinds of stuff to avoid any sort of problem. Other deals and situations should be discussed thoroughly before one files a case.
Apart from this point, all we the Leon Legal Group has to say is that drive safe. God has forbidden if any day you face any problem regarding the issue discussed above we would be pleased to help you. You also get many free advice and recommendations at our site hence freely reach out to us.
