If the truck driver responsible for an accident was employed by a trucking company, the company can be directly held responsible for the driver's negligence. This can maximize your chance of receiving maximum compensation for your accident.
If you were the victim of a commercial truck accident and the trucker was employed by a trucking company, your lawyer might decide to sue only the trucking company. But remember, this is possible only if an employment relationship can be established between the trucking company and the truck driver. The company can be directly held responsible for the driver's negligence.
Why sue the company, not the driver? Because you are looking for compensation for your damages and injuries and by holding the company responsible would get you the best chance to receive the maximum compensation.
The Law Offices of Sean M. Cleary will conduct a thorough evaluation of your case and determine the severity of the injuries suffered and set the right compensation for you.
