If you've been seriously hurt by a delivery service van or a tractor trailer here's a question you need to be asking: do I really know who to sue? These cases are complicated and that includes just figuring out who's legally responsible besides the driver.
Here’s who you need to consider.
- The corporation. The corporation can be legally responsible apart from the driver. The problem is a lot of these large corporations have several divisions, you've got to figure out the right one.
- The local terminal. Some trucks and truckers belong to an independently owned separate business. You’ll probably never see the name of that business on that truck, just the familiar giant corporate logo everyone recognizes.
- The Mechanic. If faulty repairs are involved and the company claims that it sent its trucks to an outside mechanic, you've got to get that mechanic identified and found.
With all that you've got at stake the last thing you need to do is figure out who's legally responsible and everyone to pursue in your case.
