Who Can Be Sued in a Truck Accident Case?

Someone should pay for your damages after being in a truck accident that was not your fault. But who? The answer depends on what parties were involved in your accident and to what extent.

Most truck accident cases will name the following parties as defendants:

  • Truck driver: Many truck drivers have individually purchased insurance policies that they use, regardless of who is currently employing them or what truck they are driving. You can probably file your truck accident claim against such a policy held by the trucker who hit you.
  • Trucking company: When a truck driver is an employee of a trucking company, some liability for the accident can get passed upward to their employer. Trucking companies have separate insurance policies to file against when this happens. Although, truck drivers who are independent contractors usually cannot pass liability onto their employer.

Is Your Truck Accident Case Worth A Lot?

You will understandably want as much money as you can get for your truck accident claim. After all, no one wants to be left with a partial recovery and unpaid bills. How much can you expect your truck accident claim or lawsuit to be worth, though?

Every case has a different value because every case is unique. However, truck accident cases tend to be worth more than the average car accident case because the damage caused by a commercial truck is usually significant. The more damage that has been done and the more injuries that have been suffered, the more the cost will go up to make things close to “normal” again through medical care, vehicle repairs, and wage replacement.
