Potentially Liable Parties in a Truck Crash

Because a commercial trucking operation involves so many parties, there are a number of sources from which an accident may have ultimately originated:

  • Truck driver
  • Truck owner
  • Truck manufacturer
  • Manufacturer of truck parts
  • Truck mechanics
  • Engineers or designers of defective roads

Many of these entities have their own powerful lawyers and insurance companies. These lawyers and insurance companies have an extensive understanding of federal trucking regulations and other laws related to truck accident liability. You need an attorney with an equal amount of experience, knowledge and skill. The lawyers at Whetstone Perkins & Fulda have been handling these types of cases for many years.
