  • The driver of the big-rig
  • .

  • The truck’s owner
  • .

  • The individual person or corporate entity from whom the proprietor of the business leased the truck
  • .

  • The vehicle manufacturer or other corporations, such as the truck’s tire manufacturer, if their unsafe or defective product caused the trucking accident or impacted the severity of the resulting injuries
  • .

  • The shipper or person who loaded the contents of the truck that results in a trucking rollover accident caused by improper loading
