Rear-End Collision Information
In a rear-end collision involving a chain reaction of damage, the truck driver that initially rear ended a vehicle and started that chain reaction is generally liable (legally responsible) for all of the damage. Because of the complexity of these cases, your lawyer will need to investigate and analyze the facts of your case.
In many cases, yes, you can sue the at-fault truck driver and the trucking company that employed the driver, owned the semi cab and/or owned the trailer. In some cases, the owner of the freight that was being hauled is also legally responsible and can be included in a lawsuit seeking compensation. We recommend you find a lawyer with experience winning truck accident cases because they involve federal and state regulations specific to the trucking industry. Evidence can be destroyed if your lawyer does not act quickly.
