Who to sue in an accident involving a delivery truck.

Sometimes a traffic accident presents unique challenges due to the individuals and types of vehicles which are affected. Accidents involving delivery trucks can be especially damaging and confusing as to who should be pursued when you have been hurt or had your property damaged in a collision. It is helpful to know ahead of time who is potentially liable in these situations.

If you have been hit by a delivery truck driver and are wondering whom you should consider suing in order to have yourself or your property made whole again, you may want to start with suing the delivery company itself. In general, a delivery company may be held liable for damages provided that the driver who hit you was an employee of the company and was operating the truck within the scope of his or her employment. Provided that these conditions are met, the delivery company itself may be a better candidate for a lawsuit than the driver.

Even if you choose to sue the delivery company, you may still be able to also sue the driver who caused the accident. While the delivery company is more likely to have deeper pockets than the individual driver, you are more likely to achieve full compensation for overall damages from separate suits than from only serving suit against the delivery company itself.

Finding the responsible party and obtaining full restitution when you have been hurt or had your property damaged by a delivery truck driver can be a drawn out process with it's own set of complications and unique challenges. The representation of a qualified, experienced legal professional can always help protect your rights and navigate the complicated landscape of litigation to get you back on the road to being made whole again.
