Common Defendants in Truck Accident Lawsuits

  • Truck Drivers. Many truck crash lawsuits involve a negligent driver. There are many potential causes of these accidents, including intoxication, fatigue, or careless driving.
  • Trucking Companies. In many cases, the owner of the truck could also face liability for a crash– for example, if they are negligent in their hiring practices.
  • Municipal Governments. Truck crashes may occur due to the poor design or maintenance of a road or highway. When these defects combine to cause a collision, a victim could hold the municipality liable.
  • Truck Manufacturers. Often, a truck crash will occur when one of its parts is defective. When this occurs, a victim could file suit against the manufacturer. Common defects include faulty brakes, steering columns, or tires.
