Question:

How does a truck accident claim differ from a car accident claim?

Answer:

How a Truck Accident Claim Differs from a Car Accident ClaimI met with a woman yesterday who was involved in a bad commercial trucking case on I-20. I explained to the lady that commercial trucking cases are a lot different than automobile collision cases. If you’re reading this, you may have the same question. The main difference between a commercial trucking accident and an automobile accident case are federal and state rules regarding the safety of trucks.

Trucks are so large, they’re hard to stop. The federal government has introduced regulations to make the truck safer. Truck accident victims need to hire a lawyer who’s experienced in trucking accident cases, knows the federal rules and regulations governing trucks, and knows about safety data recorders and cameras on these trucks that should record the driver’s actions and record the collision itself.

Truck accident lawyers also have access to expert witnesses who can get to the scene as soon as possible to record all this data. Truck accident lawyers are trial lawyers who have experience in presenting these cases to juries and will get the insurance company’s attention and let them know they mean business.
