Why You Want an Attorney with Truck Accident Experience
Truck accidents differ from car accidents and other types of personal injury claims. Truck drivers and trucks are subject to specific rules and regulations that other vehicles are not subject too, including rules governing the number of hours a truck driver may be on the road. In addition, truck accidents can be extremely complex due to the number of potential parties that could contribute to a trucking accident, including:
- Truck driver
- Truck loaders
- Truck cab owner
- Truck trailer owner (usually different from the cab owner)
- Trucking companies who hire out drivers
- Truck and truck part manufacturers
Also, an experienced truck accident attorney will have a significant network of experts and professionals to call upon, including medical experts and accident reconstructionists, which are often an integral part of building a successful claim.
