Who is Responsible for a Trailer Accident?

Multiple entities may be accountable for a trailer crash. However, many of these entities frequently refuse responsibility or liability to evade paying compensation for your damages and harm.

When determining accountability, it's essential to examine other parties as well. Some of the entities that may potentially bear fault in a tractor-trailer accident include: 

  • Truck and trailer driver
  • Vehicle owner
  • Trucking-trailer agency
  • Truck-trailer and parts manufacturer
  • The Maintenance individual or company
  • The trailer cargo's loader or shipper
  • Trailer tire manufacturer

How Can I Be Compensated After a Trailer Accident?

Typically, reimbursement for a trailer accident claim is separated into economic and non-economic losses. Economic losses aim to restore a trailer accident victim to the same financial condition as before the crash. Economic losses that may be included in a trailer accident claim are:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Vocational rehabilitation

Compensation for non-economic losses resulting from a trailer accident includes:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of society and companionship
  • Loss of consortium 
  • Loss of quality of life

In limited circumstances, victims of trailer accidents may be eligible for punitive damages if evidence shows that the responsible party acted with intentional wrongdoing or with a reckless disregard to the safety and wellness of the injured party. These damages are imposed as a form of punishment for the liable party and as a deterrent to discourage others from similar conduct, not as a means of compensation.
