Holding Truck Drivers & Others Responsible
Gas and oil trucks are commercial vehicles owned by large corporations that should be prepared to take responsibility for any truck accidents caused by their drivers' negligent decisions on the road. When these responsible parties fail to meet their obligations in terms of financial compensation to cover the costs associated with injury, then legal action must be taken.
More pertinent regulations include:
- Hiring only qualified drivers and train them properly
- Drivers must take rest breaks periodically to avoid fatigue
- All equipment such as brakes and lights must be maintained properly
- All trailer loads need to be adequately secured
You deserve to be compensated if the truck driver, owner, or loading company failed to uphold these regulations, thereby leading to your accident. Our West Virginia vehicle accident lawyers can begin investigating your accident right away to determine who exactly was at fault and who may be held accountable for your compensation.
