How Truck Accidents Differ From Car Accidents
An experienced lawyer knows that truck accidents cannot be handled in the same manner as car accidents. The trucking industry is controlled by federal law, and truck drivers have strict rules to follow. Our years of experience with commercial truck accidents allow us to address these matters and understand how they play an essential role in building a strong case. We hold parties, including drivers and trucking companies, accountable for their negligent acts.
We frequently find that violations of trucking industry laws are the cause of accidents. For example, we may determine that the truck driver violated the law by spending too many hours behind the wheel without taking a break, leading to driver fatigue which caused the accident. We know that finding evidence of these violations may require some digging because truck drivers may falsify logbooks to make it look like they were driving legally.
We also know the importance of looking at maintenance records. Truck drivers and trucking companies are responsible for caring for their equipment. If the responsible parties do not maintain tires, brakes and other items, it may cause a serious accident.
