Overcoming the Challenges of Truck Accident Cases
Truck accidents are not the same as car accidents. A personal injury lawyer cannot handle a truck accident in the same way they would handle a car accident.
One of the most important differences in truck accidents is that these cases require knowledge of the motor carrier safety regulations that apply specifically to these vehicles. Often, our investigation reveals that an accident may have been prevented if regulations had been followed. Knowing the law helps our attorneys prove negligence.
Determining the Cause of a Truck Accident
Among the violations that frequently lead to truck accidents are:
- Truck drivers spending too many hours on the road, leading to exhaustion
- Trucks being overloaded or improperly loaded
- Trucks being driven at unsafe speeds
