You might think that car accidents and truck accidents are the same – but they’re not. Wrecks involving tractor trailers are very different and require an attorney with experience and knowledge of these kinds of cases.
Trucks are subject to federal regulations and safety requirements. When violations of these regulations contribute to causing an accident, you need a lawyer who can spot them. Also, many companies have their own driver training and driver retention policies. If the truck driver who caused the wreck wasn’t eligible to drive based on his own company’s policy, you need a good lawyer who will catch that too.
In trucking accidents, there can be different insurance companies involved and sometimes different company names. If you name the wrong company as a defendant, you could lose your right to recover for your injuries, just based on that one mistake.
Because of the catastrophic injury a tractor trailer can cause and the complications involved with this kind of litigation, you need an attorney who is experienced with trucking cases. Call me – I can help.
