How the Type of Accident Impacts Our Approach to the Claim
Unfortunately, many truck accidents result in catastrophic injuries. This is due to the sheer size of a semi-truck and the comparative lack of strength offered by most other vehicles on the road.
From a purely legal perspective, one of the major factors that we need to consider is the regulated nature of the trucking industry. Truck drivers have rules to follow. They can only spend a certain amount of time on the road. They can only haul loads of a certain weight. Violations of state and federal laws are often at the heart of trucking accidents of all types.
Violations of truck industry regulations are not the only causes of accidents. Sometimes, investigation reveals that the cause was the truck itself. Perhaps there was a defective part or, more commonly, there was a part that was poorly maintained by the trucking company. We may have to go against a manufacturer or a maintenance provider, if not the trucking company itself. No matter who the opponent is, we are ready to take them on.
