Who is responsible for damages in a commercial trucking accident?

When individuals are involved in accidents with commercial trucks, they are often unsure whether to seek damages from the driver or the trucking company.

In many cases, the driver should seek damages from the trucking company because they are often responsible for their drivers’ damages. However, if the truck driver is found to be negligent, then the driver may be responsible for damages.

Attorneys can often judge on a case-by-case basis whether it is better to seek damages from a driver or trucking company. If you or anyone you know has been injured in a trucking accident, contact the Des Moines truck accident attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at 877-327-2600.
