Several Parties May Be Liable
Truck Owner and Equipment Owner: The owner of the truck, trailer, and other equipment has a duty to inspect and maintain their trucks and equipment to ensure that it is safe for travel on Alabama highways. Defective brakes, poorly maintained tires, or other improperly maintained equipment often contributes to truck accidents.
Truck Or Equipment Leasing Company: The company that leases a tractor trailer truck, trailer, or truck equipment is responsible for inspecting and maintaining the equipment leased. They may be held liable for trucking accidents.
Truck Loaders: When tractor trailers are not properly loaded, overweight or unbalanced loads often lead to truck rollover accidents. The truck loaders have a duty to load the truck to ensure that the load is properly balanced and does not shift.
Truck Manufacturers & Part Manufacturers: When defective vehicles and parts contribute to truck accidents, the vehicle and part manufacturers may be held liable for the truck accident.
Federal, State, and Local Road Authorities: The agency responsible for the design, construction, or maintenance of the road may be held liable for unsafe and dangerous road conditions when they contribute to a truck accident.
