Potential Trucking Accident Defendants for Cases in Florida

To ensure that our clients obtain fair compensation for their injuries, our truck accident attorneys identify as many potential defendants as possible when developing a case. Possible liable parties include:
- The truck driver
- The owner, lessor, or lessee of the truck
- The trucking company
- The party that loaded the truck
- The shipper who retained the trucking company
- Insurance companies
In some cases products, materials, or vehicles may have malfunctioned, justifying a product liability claim against a manufacturer.
