Kentucky attorneys fighting for your rights after an 18-wheeler crash

Every auto accident has the potential to cause severe or life-threatening injuries. Few accidents are as dangerous as those involving commercial trucks. The sheer size of trucks compared to cars and other vehicles means that the damage caused by an accident can be catastrophic.

After a crash involving an 18-wheeler, seek help from an attorney with the knowledge to protect your rights inside and outside of a courtroom. When you need a lawyer with the compassion to guide you through the legal process and the tenacity to fight for your rights, turn to Crandall & Pera Law to secure representation with a Lexington truck accident attorney.

Who is liable in a Kentucky trucking accident?

Because they are commercial vehicles, many parties are involved in getting a truck on the road. From manufacturers to leasing companies to mechanics to cargo loaders, there are many steps in the process during which a mistake can occur. Of course, there is also the possibility of the driver making an error due to fatigue or improper training. There are federal laws that monitor the amount of time a truck driver is allowed to be on the road; but the pressure of the job and making deadlines sometimes leads to longer drives than is legal.

All of these potential factors mean that trucking accident cases can be complicated and different parties may attempt to place blame on someone else. That is why you need an experienced Lexington auto accident lawyer on your side to determine who is at fault and what caused the accident.

Some of the people or entities that may be at fault for your accident include:

  • The driver
  • The trucking company or truck’s owner
  • The leasing company
  • The manufacturer of the vehicle or its parts
  • The shipper or loader of the truck’s cargo

With all of these parties passing off responsibility on one another, the legal process after a truck accident can be confusing and overwhelming. That is where our knowledgeable Lexington truck accident lawyers step in to be your advocates.
