If You Have Ever Driven on the Highway
You understand how nerve-wracking it can be to drive alongside semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, and 18-wheelers. The good news is that there are both federal and state laws regulating truck inspections, weight limits, maintenance, and total hours driven sequentially. But regardless of these regulations, negligence, driver mistakes related to distracted and/or fatigued driving, or adverse weather conditions can still lead to accidents resulting in personal injury. Considering that delivery services like Amazon have risen in popularity over the past decade, there are more trucks on the road than ever and as such more likelihood of accidents.
Truck accidents are unique in the personal injury world. Victims are often forced to deal with the trucking company’s insurance and the driver’s insurance. Fault can be difficult to prove and liability challenging to establish. Having an experienced team of legal professionals working on your behalf is the best way to get the settlement you deserve following a trucking accident.
Trucking companies will do their very best to avoid liability. For example, a major trucking company may require their drivers to purchase or lease their own equipment. That way, if an accident results in personal injury, the company will claim that the driver is 100% liable. The leading cause of truck accidents is failure to properly maintain these vehicles, which trucking companies can claim was the driver’s responsibility. In order to navigate these tricky liability and insurance regulations, you will need an experienced personal injury attorney on your side.
