We Seek Maximum Compensation From Every Source

The truck driver may not be the only party legally responsible for the accident. To ensure that our clients obtain fair compensation for their injuries, our truck accident lawyers identify other potentially responsible defendants. Other potentially liable parties include:

  • The owner, lessor or lessee of the truck
  • The trucking company
  • Contractors
  • Employers
  • The party that loaded the truck
  • The shipper that retained the trucking company
  • Insurance companies

In some cases, a product, material or vehicle may have malfunctioned, giving rise to a claim against a manufacturer.
