Proving Fault in a Truck Accident Case
When you bring a claim to recover compensation after a truck accident, the burden of proof rests on you. That means you must show that the person or entity you're taking action against caused the collision because of their negligence or recklessness.
Meeting the burden isn't as straightforward as it seems, as many factors are involved in these types of collisions.
First, the causes of truck accidents are varied and may include:
- Driver error
- Improper cargo load
- Poor training
- Lack of maintenance
Second, because a number of causes exist, several different people may be held accountable for the crash. For instance, if the driver was texting while behind the wheel, they would be considered liable. However, if the crash was caused because the cargo wasn't properly secure, the loading company may be responsible.
Determining and proving fault requires examining reports, records, road conditions, and more. At Rogosheske, Rogosheske & Atkins, PLLC, when our St. Paul truck accident attorneys take on a case, we review all relevant evidence and, when necessary, conduct accident re-creations to establish fault. This helps ensure we hold the correct parties liable and seek just compensation.
Taking On Big Insurance Companies for You
For many people, one of the most challenging aspects of a truck accident case is dealing with the insurance company. The insurer works hard to pay out as little as possible and will try to prove that their policyholder wasn't at fault or that the victim was at least partially to blame. The company has lawyers working for them looking out for its best interests.
Going up against an insurance company can be daunting. You need someone on your side who will fight to protect your rights. At Rogosheske, Rogosheske & Atkins, PLLC, we will focus on your goals and needs as we seek compensation on your behalf. We are tough and skilled negotiators and won't back down or accept an unfair offer. Additionally, if we can't settle your case out of court, we're ready and able to take it to trial.
