What Makes A Truck Accident Different?
An accident involving a semi-truck or other large commercial vehicle is different than a typical car accident for several reasons. Typically, the consequences of a truck accident are far more serious because of the weight difference in the vehicles. You or your loved one may be suffering from a catastrophic injury.
In addition, the rules and regulations for semis are different. Finally, your case may involve more than one party because the driver’s employer, the company that owns the truck or its contents, and the company that loaded the truck may all play a role.
When working on commercial vehicle cases, time is of the essence. We will start working on your case right away to gather all available evidence, including logbooks, manifests and maintenance records.
