Truck Accidents

Many people think of truck accidents as simply much larger automobile accidents. But not only are the vehicles different, the laws governing trucks involved in interstate commerce are quite specific and encompass numerous subject areas. Many of these laws and regulations are uniquely designed to protect motorists from the negligence of the truck companies. Understanding the finer details of commercial motor vehicle law is essential to handling a case involving a truck accident. The driver, his qualifications, his character, his experience, and how he got behind the wheel are all integral to every single truck accident case.

Semi wrecks and other big truck accidents can involve tremendous force and cause devastating injury or death. The injuries caused by a truck accident can change your life and your family's life for years into the future. The full consequences of the accident may not always be clear in the beginning.

After the crash you may need:

  • Doctor's care
  • Emergency medical services
  • Hospitalization
  • Medicine
  • Other care
  • Physical therapy
  • Rehabilitation

Your accident may cause:

  • Disability
  • Lost work time and lost income
  • Medical expenses
  • Money problems due to ongoing living and medical expenses while your income is reduced
  • Pain
  • Problems getting medical care

After your doctors have done as much as possible, you may have:

  • Pain and suffering for years into the future
  • Reduced earnings because you are unable to do the job you had when hurt
  • Years of medical bills and drug expenses

Heavy regulation of the trucking industry is designed to protect motorists from trucking company or driver negligence. If youíve been injured in a big truck crash, you need experienced, sensitive attorneys who know the Federal and State trucking industry regulations, and know how to prove the trucking company or driver was responsible

Truck accident lawsuits tend to be far more complex than other vehicle accidents for several reasons:

  • Trucking companies and insurance adjusters realize the potential for major claims when a truck accident is involved.
  • After an accident, they quickly mobilize adjusters, investigators and experts to try to gather evidence helpful to their cause and to protect them against major damage claims.

There are a variety of defendants and possible claims when a truck is involved in an accident, including:

  • Defective Tires
  • Driver Fatigue
  • Equipment Malfunction
  • Excess Speed
  • Failure To Follow State And Federal Regulations  
  • Overloaded Freight

For these reasons, a truck accident case can be extremely complex. It is essential that you retain an attorney who has a history of success in litigating truck accident cases.
