Truck accident cases are more complicated than those involving vehicle-to-vehicle crashes. It is easy to believe that the truck driver is responsible for the accident. You may believe that the truck driver is responsible for all your injuries and losses.
It is obvious that you are not responsible for the accident. This must be proven in your insurance claim and in court. In personal injury cases involving vehicle accidents, there are four elements of negligence. The following must be proven by an injured person in a truck accident:
- You owed the truck driver a duty to drive safely and reasonably.
- This duty of care was breached by the truck driver.
- This breach of care led to injuries for you or your loved ones.
- These injuries caused damages and losses for you or your loved ones.
