Who Can Be Held Liable for a Flagstaff Truck Accident?

There may be various parties that could be held liable in the event a truck accident occurs. Of course, it is certainly possible for passenger vehicle drivers to be liable for these incidents if their negligence was the cause of the crash. However, truck drivers can be held responsible for these incidents as well. Some of the most common causes of accidents that revolve around truck driver negligence include incidents where a driver:

  • Operates their vehicle while impaired by alcohol or drugs
  • Operates while distracted by a phone or another device
  • Fails to follow the federal hours of service requirements
  • Allows the truck to be overloaded
  • Disregards traffic laws
  • Operates the truck too fast for conditions

Additionally, trucking companies can also be held responsible for these incidents. Truck companies play a significant role when it comes to ensuring the safety of these vehicles. This includes:

  • Regularly inspecting and maintaining each truck
  • Ensuring drivers are properly certified and trained
  • Not letting drivers to operate more hours than federal regulations allow
  • Ensuring the truck is not overloaded at any point

Data from the Arizona Department of Transportation shows that there were more than 10,000 total crashes involving larger commercial trucks during the latest reporting year. This includes accidents involving tractor-trailers, dump trucks, garbage trucks, tanker trucks, concrete mixers, and more.
