Can I sue Ryder System for the injuries in the accident?
Ryder System drivers who cause an accident that injures an innocent victim can be held accountable for their negligent driving. The company is also legally responsible to any person injured by one of their trucks. These lawsuits seek compensation for pain and suffering, disability, loss of enjoyment of life, and other non-monetary claims.
In cases involving death, the surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit. These lawsuits claim settlements for the pain and suffering caused from the time of accident until the death (even if just a matter of seconds) and the loss of companionship for family members.
