If you were involved in a Madison WI truck accident, you may be wondering who can be sued? Any accident can be serious but one involving a truck brings the risk of injury to an all time high. The individuals at risk to be sued are of course, the truck driver, if he or she was the cause of the accident or had some part of why the accident occurred. Another company or individual that can be sued is the owner of the truck as well as the owner of the trailer of the truck. There are many reasons why an experienced personal injury will look into each of these individuals or companies. The insurance company of the driver, the owner of the truck and the insurance company of the owner of the trailer will also be parties to the lawsuit.
Another fact that will be explored is if the injuries were caused by improper loading, then the loading facility and its insurance company will be listed within the lawsuit. Of course, before suing any of the parties listed above we must first determine were they responsible for the accident and did they harm another person due to their negligence. If you were the unfortunate other driver and you became injured in this accident, your own vehicle insurance or underinsured motorist coverage in certain circumstances may apply.
Accidents are tragic events in our lives. The court system is a complicated maze to get through. Krueger Hernandez & Thompson SC levels the playing field against large insurance companies and truck companies on your behalf so that you get the compensation you deserve.
