This is where trucking accidents diverge from passenger car accidents. In a trucking situation, there are many more potential defendants than you would initially think. For example, the broker who is involved in the scheduling of the load for the trucking company may be liable for your damages. The shipper who was not actually involved in the truck moving across the state might also be involved. It’s important that you talk to an attorney who’s willing and able to do a complete investigation to determine all of the potential defendants in your case.
