What’s so complicated about truck accidents?
Truck accident cases are more complicated than a typical car accident claim for a variety of reasons. For example:
- Obtaining evidence. Insurance companies have rapid response teams all over the country that can get to the scene of an accident within minutes. They are trained to gather evidence that supports their version of events.
- Multiple sources of liability. Many parties could be responsible for causing a truck accident. Liable parties may include the driver, the warehouse that loaded the truck, the owner of the trailer, the owner of the tractor, the shop that maintained the vehicle, the manufacturers of the vehicle, tires or other parts — even the company that designed the highway.
- State and federal regulations. Truckers and trucking companies must meet regulations set by each state and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). A truck accident lawyer must stay on top of pertinent rules, ranging from hours of service, regulations for drivers, to procedures for transporting hazardous materials.
- Understanding the business. Trucking is a big business. Like any business, trucking companies try to reduce costs wherever possible. Too often, they cut corners on safety. They may scrimp on vehicle maintenance or encourage drivers to violate hours of service regulations.
