Trucking Collisions are Complex
A trucking accident case is often complex and involves several issues that do not present themselves in a motor vehicle accident. One of the first challenges that needs to be addressed is finding the rules that govern the trucking industry. The Federal Government provides regulations for the trucking industry. Rules for trucking accidents can also be found in state law and even in local law depending on the location of the accident. To add another layer of complexity to trucking accidents, the insurance policies can be numerous and complex. You will want experienced counsel on your side to determine the rules that apply and figure out what coverage may be available to the injured person.
With the weight and force of the large trucks, the injuries are often severe and even deadly. The damages in trucking cases can be large.
