Yes, you can. Trucking companies are required by federal laws to take certain safety measures regarding their trucks and drivers to prevent accidents. If the trucking company has violated the law and it led to the truck accident, then the company can be sued for the damages caused. In addition, the trucking company that employs a negligent driver is vicariously responsible for that driver’s misconduct as long as it occurred in the course and scope of his employment.
