Liability for a Sumter Truck Accident

After a Sumter truck accident, you need to ask, “Who’s responsible for my injuries?” You may not have the tools to determine who caused your accident, but it’s a crucial part of your claim. Without this answer, you can’t sue the at-fault party or seek a settlement with the correct insurer.

Truck accidents are more complex because they involve drivers who are on the job. They may have caused your accident, but they may not be financially liable for your injuries. In many cases, their employer is the one responsible for paying for your losses.

Other factors can affect who pays for your injuries. For example, the truck driver in your Sumter accident may have lost control because of faulty brakes, for example. When a product breaks down and injures someone, that may be the fault of the manufacturer. Talk to your truck accident lawyer about the details of your claim and who or what is responsible.

South Carolina Law Can Affect Your Truck Accident Claim

When you’re hurt in a truck accident, it’s not always as easy as going to court and getting compensated for your injuries. You also have to focus on protecting your compensation. State law can affect your Sumter truck accident claim and put your compensation at risk.

Your truck accident lawyer in Sumter can help you calculate your losses caused by the accident. These damages cover both your economic and non-economic damages. Your economic damages cover your financial needs, such as coverage for your medical bills, lost wages, and car repairs.
