Taking Legal Action after a Tanker Truck Accident

Truck accidents are often severe collisions that may cause significant property damage and serious injuries. The risk for devastating harm and even death increases when the big rig involved in the crash is a tanker truck. These vehicles may be carrying gases and other explosive liquids that can turn a seemingly insignificant fender bender into a fiery crash.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a tanker truck accident, you have a legal right to seek damages from any person or entity that may have been responsible. This usually includes the truck’s driver, whom the law requires to operate his or her vehicle in a reasonably safe manner. Truckers owe others on the road a “duty of care” to refrain from dangerous behavior like speeding, changing lanes without signaling, disregarding traffic signs, or drinking and driving. A trucker who does not live up to this duty is likely to be found negligent and liable for any injuries and costs that result.

The trucker’s employer may also be responsible for a crash, based on a legal theory called respondeat superior. Generally, an employer is responsible for the actions of its employees while they are operating within the scope of their jobs. This theory would apply when a trucker causes a crash while transporting a load from one warehouse to another, for example, as instructed by his or her employer. A trucking company may also be found liable for a collision if it fails to properly train its drivers or pushes truckers to violate federal and state regulations, such as the limits on the hours that they can log behind the wheel each day and week.
