Orland Park Trucking Accident Attorney

Multiple Defendants in Truck Accidents

Unlike typical car accidents where the driver of one vehicle is at fault and is thus, the only defendant in the case, truck accidents typically can include multiple defendants. In commercial truck accidents, multiple entities, each carrying their own individual insurance, can be defendants in the case.

Of course the driver of the truck will be one defendant in the case. But in addition to the driver, defendants in a truck accident case can include:

(1) The trucking company;
(2) The shipping company;
(3) The manufacturing company of the cargo in the truck;
(4) The Shipping company of the cargo in the truck;
(5) Employers; and
(6) Contractors.

Identifying the potential and appropriate defendants in any truck accident case is a crucial factor to obtaining the maximum compensation for the injuries you or your loved ones suffered in a truck accident. With over 30 years of experience handling serious big rig accidents in the Chicagoland area, I have the ability to analyze a case and identify the appropriate defendants and bring those defendants into the case.

The experience and expertise a bring to every case I handle allows you to get the maximum recovery for your injuries or the loss of a loved one. Contact me today!
