Who Is Liable for a Commercial Vehicle Accident in Fresno?

If you are involved in an accident with a commercial vehicle, you have the right to pursue an insurance claim or lawsuit. By filing a claim, you can recover compensation for several types of losses, from medical expenses and property damage to lost wages and pain and suffering.

There are multiple types of claims that you can pursue after a commercial truck accident.

  • Personal Injury Lawsuits: You can file a personal injury lawsuit in California civil court against the truck driver if his or her actions caused your accident. You can also name the trucking company if the driver is an employee. Trucking companies may also be liable if their negligence leads to an accident, such as hiring untrained drivers or requiring employees to violate hours-of-service regulations.
  • Insurance Claims: Many trucking companies have insurance policies that cover accidents caused by their drivers. You could file a claim against the company policy, or against the at-fault driver’s insurance policy.
  • Product Liability Lawsuits: Some truck accidents occur due to defective vehicles or auto parts. In these situations, you can file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the defective product.
