Far too often, employees suffer injuries or death while performing their job duties. If a commercial truck factors into a loved one’s injury or fatality, you may wonder whether you have the right to bring a claim against the driver or trucking company.
According to North Carolina law, workers’ compensation is not necessarily the only way to seek compensation for a workplace accident. Families can typically take legal action against a truck driver or the company who owns the truck.

You could recover compensation through a third party claim
When a third party is responsible for hurting one of your family members on the job, you may have a distinctly different case from state workers’ compensation laws. Simply put, you may be able to hold more than one entity liable.
For example, if a driver hits a highway worker, not unlike the recent tragic accident on interstate 40, you might be able to take legal action against the:
- Truck driver
- Trucking company
