Can I bring a claim against anyone besides the other driver?

If the driver was on the job when the crash happened, you could potentially sue the employer. Employers are generally responsible for the behavior of workers on the job, and an employer may be liable for a collision caused by a careless worker. This is obviously true for truck drivers, but also for anyone who drives for work-related purposes.

If vehicle defects or problems with any of the vehicles involved in the collision were the cause of the accident, you may also have a product liability claim. You could potentially sue the manufacturer of the car or of the defective parts. If a defect in the road’s design or maintenance contributed to the crash, you may be able to bring a claim against the agency responsible for the road.

These are just some of the other potential defendants in a car accident case. Our lawyers can fully investigate your crash and pursue compensation from all responsible parties.
