Determining Liability in a Truck Accident:

 

When a truck driver causes an accident in Fort Lauderdale or elsewhere in South Florida due to negligence, a legal principle known as "vicarious liability" may come into play. According to this doctrine, the employer is responsible for the actions of its employees as long as they acted within the scope of their employment. In the context of a truck accident, this means that a trucking company or a large corporation is likely to be held liable for the injuries you sustained.

 

However, truck accidents can also occur due to negligence on the part of other parties, such as a truck maintenance company, truck manufacturer, parts manufacturer, or even a tire company. Our skilled attorneys at QBM Legal can help you identify the responsible party and pursue a claim for compensation based on their insurance policy.

 

Contributory Negligence:

 

In some cases, truck accidents may involve multiple factors or parties who share some degree of responsibility for the accident. This can include situations where the injured party might also have contributed to the accident. The theory of "contributory negligence" comes into play in such instances, which means that while you can still seek compensation, it may be reduced based on the extent of your responsibility.
