The consequences of a collision between a commercial truck and a passenger vehicle are usually devastating for the occupants of the smaller passenger vehicle, frequently involving serious injuries or fatalities. The drivers of commercial vehicles such as tractor trailers, dump trucks, and buses have increased responsibility due to the disparity of their size to other vehicles with whom they share the road.
DID YOU KNOW?
Federal regulations set minimum standards for the operation of commercial vehicles and require companies to conduct routine inspections and maintenance on their vehicles in order to protect the public. Unfortunately, trucking companies and their drivers do not always adhere to these standards, which can lead to catastrophic injuries and even death. Victims need the expertise of a trucking attorney on their side.
WHAT TO DO NOW
Time is of the essence in commercial accident cases. We will immediately send out letters to obtain all maintenance records and driver’s logs that can prove negligence, and we will begin an intensive investigation into the factors that contributed to the trucking accident, identifying all available sources of compensation. Meanwhile, many commercial insurance companies, who quickly realize losses will be high, work on the flipside to limit their company’s or driver’s liability.
