A collision with a tractor-trailer can be a big, bad nuisance. Although the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is keeping an eye on safety, the pileups continue.

  2. Record the defendant’s response. The at-fault party must respond to the claim within a period of time. Called the response, this response shares the defendant’s side of the story.
  3. The parties request information from each other. Written questions are asked, known as interrogatories. Documentation is requested to support your case.
  4. Try to reach an agreement. The time and money spent on a trial can snowball. It is advisable to try to resolve your dispute outside of the courtroom. An agreement may result from mediation or other resolution attempts.
