For victims of trucking or delivery service van accidents, like ones caused by FedEx or UPS, one of the most challenging first steps to take is figuring out exactly who to sue. South Carolina trucking accident attorney Rob Usry explains it's just not as easy as going after the corporate logo on the truck.
Hey folks, 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.
Number one, 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.
Number two, 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.
Number three, 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. So get a professional to do it for you.
