How is liability proven in a truck accident case?

Not all truck drivers in Texas exercise the appropriate level of diligence and care when they are behind the wheel. Some even fail to take into account the potentially hazardous nature of the load their vehicle bears. A truck crash can have devastating enough consequences without having to factor in the possibility of the truck's cargo catching fire, exploding or posing any other risk to those caught up in the incident.

Another all-too-common risk facing Texas drivers is that some truck drivers choose to drive even when they are intoxicated or fatigued. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to show the truth of these situations, so it is helpful to collect as many details as possible about your accident.

As this article on personal injury explains, in order to prove liability, you may need to demonstrate the following three things:

  • That the defendant in the case owed you a duty of care.
  • That he or she did not exercise reasonable care.
  • The lack of care caused your injuries.

Of course, each case is different, so the matter is likely to hinge on several other factors as well.

If you or a loved one have suffered injuries as a result of a truck accident, you may find the support of an attorney to be extremely useful. You may feel like legal action is far too much to consider when you are dealing with the aftermath of the crash. However, a successful claim could give you some peace of mind and might also help to reduce the financial burden of your experience. Your attorney can advise you about your options and may be able to guide you through the legal process.
