A big rig jackknifed and I was injured in Florida. Can I recover against the driver of the truck?
If you’re injured in a big truck accident, you may be able to recover from the driver, but you also may be able to recover from many different entities. For instance, if the truck driver was working for somebody and he was in the course and scope of his employment, they may be responsible for your injuries and damages. If there is mechanical defects and a mechanical shop worked on that car, they may be responsible for your damages. If he was under special direction on how to get the goods from point A to point B, the person who owns the goods may be responsible for your damages. In particular, with trucking cases, I would recommend that you contact a experienced trucking lawyer so you can talk about the facts of your cases, and you can understand who may be responsible for your damages.
