Truck Accident Cases are Complex
Truck accidents, semi-truck accidents and collisions involving 18-Wheeler tractor-trailers or big rigs entail a complicated set of laws and large amounts of evidence. The truck industry is heavily regulated; therefore, motor vehicle wrecks involving trucks are generally significantly more complex than typical automobile accidents collisions. Not only are lawsuits complex, but injuries are often devastating, including paralysis, brain injuries, severe burns and death. State and federal laws are in place, designed to keep safe the public roadways, and the drivers who are on them.
We Will Hire Specialists to Investigate the Crash Scene
When we are retained in an auto accident with serious injuries caused by a truck or 18-wheeler, we immediately hire specialists in accident reconstruction and get them out to the scene as soon as possible. The accident reconstructionist can very often determine how and why the accident happened.
The accident reconstructionist can often determine right down to the seconds how much time the trucker had to react to some emergency or hazard. Often, truck accidents are caused by driver fatigue as the drivers are on the road too long without rest. This requires that the driver’s logs be inspected to determine how long the driver had been on the road. Was there drinking and driving? Was the truck improperly loaded? We will find out.

If you are the victim of a truck accident, you are entitled to compensation for medical bills, property damage and car repairs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and permanent injury or disfigurement.
