What Makes Truck Accidents Different
The risk of life-changing injury or death is far greater when a truck is involved. The sheer size difference between a truck and a car means that these cases are often tragic. In recognition of the dangers that trucks pose to those they share the highways with, a tremendous amount of regulations have been enacted by the state and federal government to ensure that these potentially dangerous vehicles are operated safely. There are regulations that dictate everything from vehicle inspection and maintenance to loading and unloading to the qualifications of drivers and the number of hours drivers can spend behind the wheel.
When you choose an attorney to handle a truck accident case, you want to make certain the one you choose is familiar with these regulations. We are. We know that our investigation of your case may reveal that corners have been cut and rules have been broken. We often find that, not only were rules broken, but attempts were made to cover up the violation. We know how to deal with falsified logbooks and other information to build a case on facts. Our attorneys will make certain that negligent truck drivers and trucking companies are held accountable.
We work on a contingent fee basis. We do not get paid unless you do.
