Question:

Can I sue the trucking company if the driver who hit me was driving drunk?

Answer:

Suing The Truck Company For Drunk Driving If you’ve been involved in a collision with a semi-truck driver who was drunk, your case is going to be more complex than you can imagine. The driver’s company might have greater liability than just for your direct personal injury damages, and there might be other entities that have liability for those damages, as well, so that your damages are generally enhanced.

One of the things we know about Idaho juries, from our experience as trial lawyers in Idaho court rooms and the verdicts we have gotten for Idaho residents who were injured in these types of collisions, is that juries don’t like this type of behavior. They will want to impose upon those folks who cause this type of damage to you full responsibility for all the losses that they’ve imposed upon you. That may be the company who hired this driver, given what their knowledge of his situation is. We’ve certainly seen cases where a company had great knowledge of a driver’s history of drunken DUIs, time in prison for being a drunk driver, and they still just gave him a truck and sent him out on the road one afternoon, and he ends up killing a person. There is liability on the company’s behalf for this behavior as well as on the driver’s behalf for this behavior.
