Proving CRST Liable for Your Truck Accident and Personal Injuries

Personal injury law provides injured motorists with a right to bring a lawsuit against CRST and hold the company responsible for injuries suffered in a crash. An injured motorist may be able to hold CRST directly responsible for their injuries when CRST’s actions caused the crash. This can happen when CRST does not follow the rules they are required to follow in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. Under these special rules, CRST must hire drivers that are safe and responsible, train its drivers on safe driving practices and how to respond to emergency situations, and maintain its fleet of trucks to reduce the likelihood of breakdowns on public roadways. When CRST fails to follow these rules, you have a right to bring a direct claim for negligence and hold them liable for your injuries.

When there is no direct negligence claim against CRST, you can still hold them liable for your injuries under vicarious liability principles. Vicarious liability subjects a party to liability for the actions of another. For instance, if a child breaks a neighbor’s window, the parent may be responsible for the cost of a new window. Likewise, motor carriers can be held responsible for the negligence of their employees. If a CRST driver runs a red light and crashes into your vehicle, you can bring a claim against the driver for negligence and hold CRST vicariously liable for the damages resulting from the crash.

There are conditions that must be met before CRST can be held vicariously liable for the actions of its employees. Consulting a trained truck accident lawyer will help you determine the best path forward and the potential avenues of recovery for the damages you have suffered.

CRST and Its Drivers Were Involved in Multiple Truck Accidents Over the Past Two Years

CRST and its drivers have been involved in many truck accidents over the past twenty-four months, many of which have resulted in serious injuries and death. According to data maintained by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, trucks operating under CRST’s authority were involved in 462 truck accidents over the last two years, resulting in seven fatalities and 144 injuries.

In addition to injury-causing crashes, CRST trucks, and drivers have undergone 9,744 inspections, 3,417 of which have resulted in a violation of some type. These violations range from driving infractions, such as speeding and improper turns, to truck issues, such as improper lighting and deficient braking systems. These are serious infractions that may not result in a serious truck accident immediately, but over time, these violations will cause serious accidents that injure innocent motorists.

As truck accident attorneys trained in trucking litigation, our job is to identify the violations that caused your crash and hold CRST and its drivers responsible. Multi-billion-dollar trucking companies cannot break the rules and then escape liability when an accident occurs. We will prosecute your claims and protect your rights under the law.
