Are Truck Drivers Responsible For Damages?

Are Truck Drivers Responsible For Damages?

Are truck drivers responsible for damages in an accident? If the truck driver's negligence caused the accident, they, or the company they work for, are responsible for the damages. However, most truck drivers and the companies they work for have commercial liability insurance, so insurance companies will almost always be the entity that actually pays for damages. As a result, insurance companies will do what they can to shift financial responsibility. They are quite adept at what they do. That is why it can be challenging to face them by yourself. Don't let insurance companies pressure you into settling your truck accident claim for pennies on the dollar.

Truck Drivers Responsible For Damages

One way insurance companies lower their costs is by trying to shift responsibility to other parties involved in an incident. We have talked to many people concerned that they could be ruining someone's life by pursuing compensation. After all, most people don't have hundreds of thousands of dollars laying around to pay a fair settlement when there is a significant injury. Unfortunately, the adjusters and insurance lawyers know this. Insurance companies are not above using guilt to reduce what they should pay. As such, remember that insurance companies and not individuals are almost always the ones that are paying for compensation. A truck accident lawyer from Johnson Law will make sure they can't use cheap tricks like this.
