Who Is Liable in My Moving Truck Accident Case?
Generally, there are three possible liable parties in a moving truck accident case:
- The driver of the moving truck.
- The company that rented the moving truck.
- The company that manufactured the moving truck.
Florida is a vicarious liability state, which means that employers can be held liable for the negligence of their employees. However, given that drivers of moving trucks are customers and not employees, this caveat usually doesn’t apply to moving truck cases. Moving companies usually protect themselves from liability through rental contracts, too.
If the driver of the moving truck was behaving negligently, they may be held liable. These are a few common causes of moving truck accidents:
- Distracted driving.
- Driving while under the influence.
- Ignorance of roadway laws.
The truck manufacturer may be liable, as well, provided a vehicle failure led to your injuries. Our team can investigate your case to build a file of relevant evidence. We can assign liability, and help you pursue the best outcome.
