A truck accident can result in severe injuries and/or fatalities. As a result, the negligent party must be held accountable for their wrong doings and we can help you do that by filing a winning personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. However, if you were involved in this type of accident, who do you sue? It is usually more than one party which is why these cases can get complicated but are also worth a lot more money.

Since a tractor-trailer is much bigger and heavier than your car, it caused more damage to you when the vehicles collided. In addition, the huge size of a tractor-trailer requires a truck driver to take certain precautions. For example, according to the Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), a truck driver must maintain an appropriate following distance behind the vehicle in front of them. They also have to stay alert for changing road conditions and obstacles in their path. If they fail to do so, then they will be held responsible if their negligent actions endanger or harm others on the road. However, that does not mean that you shouldn’t file suit against the trucking company as well for hiring and then negligent supervision of the truck driver– and this is usually where the money is.

The value of your case – and how long you have to file – will depend on the facts and circumstances of what happened. Generally speaking, a settlement or jury award for a car accident is based on fault and the extent of injuries (or other damages). Fault can be reduced if there are any comparative negligence issues; but even if it’s reduced to zero, you’ll still need to show that your injuries were significant enough to justify payment for medical bills and other damages. That being said, truck accident cases are worth a lot of money– millions if the injuries and evidence are there to support it.
