WHO CAN I SUE? WHO IS RESPONSIBLE?
There are several parties that could be responsible, which could benefit you by maximizing available assets and insurance proceeds. Liable parties could include three main parties:
1. The actual trucking company: UPS, FEDEX, Waste Management, or any other commercial business;
2. The owner of the freight being towed and/or hauled;
3. The owner of the trailer, which is often different from the cab of the semi.
As a result, truck accidents may involve multiple insurance carriers and complex ownership schemes. To ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve, you should hire an attorney who is experienced in handling truck accident cases. At ‘Maggio | Thompson, LLP, you will get just that. You will get dedicated, personalized service tailored for each individual case.
