How are truck accident cases different from car accident cases?
Truck accident cases are completely different from car crash cases. There are many unique characteristics that, if not handled correctly, can make the difference of a recovery for our clients and someone not recovering any money at all. Truck drivers are held to much different standards than your average driver operating a vehicle. These truck drivers are professional drivers, and they’re held to a higher standard. They make their living driving these huge tractor trailers down the road and, if they’re not following the guidelines and the laws, they can put everyone in their path in danger.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety regulations regulate what they can and cannot do and all the rules that they are to follow. Those Federal Motor Carrier Safety regulations and the industry guidelines and standards that these truck drivers and trucking companies are held to make those cases very different from a normal car crash case. It’s those guidelines and regulations that must be fully investigated in every truck crash to determine whether or not the truck driver was at fault, whether the trucking company was doing everything that they should’ve done, and whether they were putting the public in danger by employing a truck driver that shouldn’t have been driving or a truck driver that wasn’t following the appropriate regulations.
It’s very important that you hire a lawyer that has experience with truck cases because they are much, much different than a car crash case. It can make the difference between recovering full and fair compensation and getting absolutely no recovery at all.
