Manufacturers, owners, and operators of large commercial trucks owe a duty of care to everyone else sharing the road. Trucks that can weigh up to 80,000 pounds present inherent dangers to others, which is why specific state and federal rules are in place to regulate the commercial trucking industry.

To prove your injury claim, you must prove that one or more defendants were responsible for your injuries. Liability can be a complicating factor in truck accident cases because there are often several defendants involved. For example, even if a truck driver caused the accident, the trucking company may be vicariously liable for your injuries and damages as the negligent driver’s employer.
An experienced attorney understands truck accident liability and can help you recover compensation from all responsible parties. A full and fair financial recovery accounts for all of your injuries and damages, including past, ongoing, and future losses. Depending on your unique circumstances, your accident compensation may include lost wages, loss of earning capacity, medical expenses, future medical costs, and other accident-related losses.
Unfortunately, truck accidents sometimes lead to catastrophic and fatal injuries. In Idaho, if someone’s misconduct leads to fatal injuries, surviving family members may be entitled to compensation under a wrongful death claim. Recoverable compensation for surviving family members often includes loss of financial support, funeral expenses, loss of society and guidance, and the reasonable value of the decedent’s household services.
