Trucking accident claim

Although based in Tacoma, Washington, Interstate Distributor Company’s trucks are encountered everywhere in the U.S. The company has almost 2,000 professional drivers and about 5,000 commercial vehicles in their fleet. With the sheer volume of their business, Interstate Distributor’s drivers and trucks operate in the “lower 48” delivering mobile homes, meat, produce, oilfield equipment, chemicals, and other goods.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration maintains safety records for all trucking companies operating in the United States. According to their data, Interstate Distributor Company has one of the best safety records of any trucking company currently in operation. However, recent changes in management call into question the stability of the business and whether the best safety practices are in use by the company’s new owner Heartland Express. Heartland Express trucks are seen all across the country as well.

Trucking accidents are complex events. As a result, numerous parties may be legally liable to pay damages to those injured or the family of those killed in a truck crash. The trucking company that employs a commercial truck driver involved in an accident could be liable for the driver’s negligence. Additionally, other entities who could be legally responsible for injuries or wrongful death damages to a truck accident victim include the truck driver, the owner of the truck if different than the truck driver, the company responsible for loading the cargo, and the manufacturer of any part or component on the truck that contributed to the crash.

Savvy and experienced lawyers represent the insurance companies that insure trucking outfits. They might try to negotiate a quick and easy settlement with the victim of a trucking accident. A quick settlement seems ideal in many circumstances. However, all truck accident victims must consult with an experienced truck accident attorney to make sure that they are not signing away valuable rights and forfeiting the chance to pursue all parties who are liable for damages.
