Identifying the correct parties to hold liability for your truck accident is not a matter of false accusations, but rather, your right to seek a full and fair settlement for your injuries. If you overlook a liable party, you could short-change yourself when seeking the full value of your injury claim. 

For example, if you were sideswiped by a semi truck that swerved into your lane and then ran off onto the shoulder of the road, then after the accident your Atlanta truck accident attorney would help you review the cause of your crash. It may seem like the driver was negligent in controlling the truck and crossed into your lane, but upon inspection of the truck, it may be found that a defective wheel bearing caused the driver to lose control. 

In this scenario, you may hold the trucking company or the truck manufacturer liable for your accident, rather than the driver. The truck company could have been negligent in inspecting its vehicles, or the truck manufacturer may have been negligent in testing the safety of their product. 

The amount of damages you can recover in a truck accident settlement can vary greatly depending on who you hold liable in your injury claim. You need to seek the full value of your settlement to make sure you are compensated for future medical expenses and damages to avoid unwanted financial burdens. 

The guidance of an Atlantatruck accident attorney can be of great help when determining all parties that can be held liable for your injuries in a truck accident. To make sure you are seeking all appropriate channels of compensation for your damages, seek legal help as soon as possible.
