Who Can Be Held Liable for Semi-Truck Accidents, Injuries, and Fatalities in Los Angeles, California?
In California, liability for semi-truck collisions and injuries can extend to various parties depending on the circumstances of the accident.
These parties may include:
- Truck Driver
The truck driver can be held liable if their negligence or actions directly contributed to the collision. This may include speeding, driving under the influence, distracted driving, or failing to obey traffic laws.
- Trucking Company
The trucking company that employs the driver may also be held liable if the driver acted within the scope of their employment when the accident occurred. This may make the trucking company responsible for the driver’s actions.
- Truck Owner
If the truck is owned by a separate entity from the trucking company and the owner was negligent in maintaining or servicing the vehicle, they could be held liable.
- Truck Maintenance and Repair Companies
If the collision was caused by mechanical failure or a maintenance issue with the truck, the company responsible for maintaining or repairing the vehicle may be liable if their negligence contributed to the accident.
- Cargo Loading Companies
If the collision resulted from improperly loaded or secured cargo, the company responsible for loading the cargo may be liable for negligence.
In cases where a defect in the truck or its components contributed to the accident, the manufacturer of the truck, tires, or other parts may be liable for product liability claims.
- Government Entities
If the road or highway condition contributed to the accident — including poorly maintained roads or the lack of adequate signage — the government agency responsible for maintaining the roadway may be held liable.
- Other Negligent Parties
In some cases, other drivers, pedestrians, or third parties may contribute to a semi-truck collision through their negligent actions. Liability may be apportioned among multiple parties.
