Truck Accidents

While the claims process is similar to other motor vehicle injury claims, trucking accidents are a different animal. In addition to trucking accidents more often resulting in death or serious bodily injury, there are also different rules and regulations that apply to truckers and trucking companies, which do not apply to the typical driver of a car. Truck drivers are professional drivers. They are subject to different standards than a sixteen year-old who is on the road in a Volkswagen Beetle. Not only are the drivers subject to different rules, but the trucking companies are subject to there own set of standards and rules governing not only the operation of the semi-trucks, but also truck maintenance and driver hiring and oversight.   It is important to speak with an attorney who is experienced in handling truck accident claims, and who is knowledgeable of the different rules and regulations that will apply to your case.
