Truck Accident Law and Personal Injury Claims

The U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration issue federal regulations that apply to all employers, employees, and commercial motor vehicles that transport property or passengers in interstate commerce. Additionally, each state has its own unique set of guidelines for how large trucks can operate safely within their borders.

Truck Accident Statistics

Commercial truck accidents can be devastating for anyone involved. The large size and weight of these vehicles can affect their mobility and make them more difficult to navigate on the road than a regular car. Unfortunately, these factors mean a higher percentage of accidents involving a large truck are fatal versus those involving cars.

How to Establish Who is at Fault in a Trucking Accident

If you or a family member has been injured by a commercial truck as a result of negligence, the driver, as well as the trucking company that employs him or her, may be liable for your damages. Your case will depend on your ability to prove that the other parties are responsible for your injuries. Because of this, it is essential to hire an attorney immediately after your accident so that they can thoroughly investigate the circumstances and collect all the appropriate evidence.
