Can I Sue a Trucking Company for an Accident Caused by Their Driver?

Were you involved in a motor vehicle accident with a commercial truck and have questions about whether you can sue a trucking company for an accident caused by their driver? Watch this video by dedicated Long Island truck accident lawyer Michaelangelo Matera to learn more about your rights. 


You can absolutely bring a claim against the owner of the truck in certain circumstances. Unfortunately, at the early stages, it’s very difficult to ascertain what exactly caused the truck to collide with your vehicle.

Now, even though it may seem clear, for example, when a commercial vehicle or truck hits your vehicle in the rear, and it may seem on its face clear that the operator is responsible. There’s still the potential for claims against the company as to whether or not they hired the right person to be operating that vehicle, whether or not the brakes have been maintained so that the operator was able to stop in time.

So what we do is we don’t leave any stone unturned. We look at every possibility to maximize the amount of recovery for our clients.
