Who are you looking to sue? The car manufacturer for the airbag not deploying? The person who ran the stop sign? The work truck? You should get in contact with a local personal injury attorney who can help you determine what to do, the value of your case, and the parties you should considering suing. Good luck.
Hard to tell from you post what you are asking. If you were injured then you need to most likely consult with a personal injury attorney and determine what your options are moving forward.
Yes, you can sue the truck driver and possibly other entities. Please schedule a consultation for a free case review. Did the police arrive at the scene of the accident? Did you got to the ER? Any injuries?
The above answers are correct, but the key to your issue is to contact a local personal injury lawyer.
This communication is intended as general information and not specific legal advice, and this communication does not create an attorney-client relationship. To get legal advice, consult an attorney in your local area or the area where the issue is located. It should not be relied upon as legal advice. The response is based on the limited facts provided, and without any independent investigation of the author. Given additional or different facts, the response would likely change. The attorney providing this response is only licensed in Pennsylvania, and you should contact an attorney in your jurisdiction if it is outside Pennsylvania.
You can sue but who you sue will depend on the extent of your injuries. Unless you have significant injuries, a claim against the car manufacturer may not be economically feasible. That doesn't mean that a claim against the other vehicles involved is not feasible.
