Unlike other cases, you can name more than one person as a defendant in your claim. It’s important that you identify your defendants with the guidance of a skilled legal professional. In the event that you accidentally leave out a defendant, it may be too late to add them later. Defendants in your injury claim can include the following:
- Truck drivers
- Trucking companies
- Truck equipment manufacturers
- Truck maintenance companies
