Proving Liability in a Truck Accident Claim Against Knight Transportation

When you bring a lawsuit against a wrongdoer, you are required to show that the wrongdoer was responsible for your injuries and damages. This is known as liability.

Sometimes liability is very easy to prove. For instance, if a Knight Transportation truck runs a red light and crashes into your vehicle, the police report and video footage will clearly establish that the trucker was at fault for the crash.

However, in some truck accident cases, liability can be very difficult to prove. For instance, our firm handled a case recently where our client turned from a protected stop, and the truck driver made a quick left-hand turn. In doing so, the truck crashed into our client’s vehicle in the opposite lane of traffic. If the trucker had remained in his lane and taken no evasive action, the accident would have been avoided.

In this case, the trucking company wanted to blame our deceased client as the cause of the crash. However, as trained truck accident attorneys, we did not let the company escape liability simply by pointing the finger at our client. As we investigated the crash, we determined that the trucker was distracted while driving, and only after maintaining a glimpse of our client’s vehicle did the trucker make an abrupt, knee-jerk turn, causing the collision.

This was an example of a difficult liability case and one where our client benefited substantially from the experience and resources of our firm. The police report faulted our client, and the truck driver faulted our client, but the evidence proved the truck driver was liable for the crash.

No matter the kind of crash you are involved in, if you need help, talk with our firm. We are here to help you.

Damages Available for Injuries Sustained in a Truck Crash

A party proved to be at fault for a collision is legally responsible for covering all damages resulting from the crash. In most cases, the insurer of the at-fault party covers these costs. In this sense, your damages are capped at the insurance proceeds under the available policies.

Because truck accidents have a high risk of serious injury and death, the federal government requires trucking companies to maintain greater liability coverage than standard motorists. Generally speaking, commercial trucking companies are required to maintain at least $750,000 in liability coverage to pay the cost of damages resulting from a truck collision. According to, Knight Transportation maintains $5,000,000 in liability insurance.

However, the value of life and the damages resulting from a serious injury are significantly greater than $5,000,000, and our trained truck accident attorneys will work diligently to ensure you receive all compensation you are entitled to under the law.
