Who Can Be Held Liable for My Truck Accident-Related Injuries?
Liability in most accidents involving passenger vehicles typically falls on one or more of the drivers involved. That is not necessarily the case in truck accidents, in which liability may be split among several parties. Depending on the circumstances of your truck accident, responsible parties could include:
- The truck driver
- The driver’s employer
- The owner of the tractor and the trailer
- The owner of any freight being delivered
- The manufacturer of the trailer, tractor, or another part of the truck
- A third-party maintenance or service company
If you’re unfamiliar with truck accidents, it’s helpful to have a lawyer on your side who understands Rhode Island trucking laws and has experience standing up to trucking companies and their insurers.

How Long Do You Have to File a Truck Accident Lawsuit in Rhode Island?
Rhode Island law limits how long you have to file a lawsuit to pursue compensation for losses you sustained in a truck accident. Under Rhode Island’s statute of limitations on truck accident claims, you typically have only three years from the date of the truck accident to file a lawsuit against the parties at fault for the crash. If you file suit after the statute of limitations has expired, the opposing parties can file a motion to have the court permanently dismiss your case.
