A carelessly driven truck can cause catastrophic injuries and damage on the highway. Fatigue from long hours, severe weather conditions and improperly loaded cargo can all contribute to these types of motor vehicle accidents, which often result in extreme injury, or even death.
The trucking industry is heavily regulated by the Federal Government, including the Department of Transportation and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Trucking accidents quickly become complex, since they typically involve multiple parties, including the driver, the owner of the vehicle, the company that leased the vehicle, and even the vehicle manufacturer, if a defect in the production of the truck caused the accident.
With so many parties pointing fingers, and government regulators involved, you need a lawyer who has extensive experience in these types of cases who can fully investigate the factors that went into causing the collision.
