You can be sued for negligence for the accidents you caused in the truck. If sued, you could assert as a defense that the throttle was stuck open causing the accident but ultimately it would be up to a judge or jury to decide if you were negligent.

There is no law prohibiting a person who has not yet sued you from contacting you. Now if they are harassing you that may be another legal issue but there is no prohibition on contact just because suit has been threatened. Even if they do sue you, you can still talk and try to resolve the suit informally. But if you are represented by an attorney, the opposing party's attorney should only contact your attorney.
