Accidents happen, but when the crash involves a truck, there can be significantly more damage.
Not only can a civil lawsuit help cover your medical bills, but your insurance company may require that you try get the other party to pay before your benefits will kick in. If the other party resists, a lawsuit may be your only option.
But suing a truck driver for causing an accident isn't always the same, or as simple, as suing the driver of a car. There can potentially be more ways to win, and more parties to hold accountable.

Of course, proving these allegations can be a complicated and time-consuming process, and the truck driver or any other party to a lawsuit will likely fight back.
That's why it may be wise to contact an experienced lawyer who knows about truck accidents and local laws where the crash happened, like a Los Angeles truck accident attorney if the crash happened in Southern California. (For other geographic areas, you can search for accident lawyers by location in our online directory.)
Holding multiple parties accountable may be the best way to pay off the relentless bills that inevitably follow a truck accident -- and to make sure truck drivers don't get away with unsafe driving.
