Are truck drivers always at-fault for accidents with passenger vehicles? We ask Colorado attorney Tom Metier in this askthelawyers.com Quick Question.
No, truck drivers are not always at fault in accidents with passenger vehicles. In fact, oftentimes, a truck driver is only following the instructions of his company, and we find that the fault in causing the accident are the policies or directions of the trucking company itself. Truck drivers, generally, are good people trying to do the best they can, but oftentimes are put in really tough circumstances by their employers. For those of us who are hurt in a truck accident, it isn't necessary to call the truck driver names. What's important is you get a skilled attorney to represent you to get it figured out, so that you can make a proper recovery.
