Trucking Injuries

Simply because of the sheer weight of commercial trucks, severe injuries and death can result from truck accidents. The trucking industry knows this and depending on the severity of the wreck, they may have investigators, risk managers, and attorneys on the scene of a truck injury within hours of the collision, no matter what time of day or night the injury happens. Commercial trucks have state and federal motor carrier safety rules and regulations beyond what ordinary drivers are required to do. That may depend on whether it's an interstate tractor trailer rig or an intrastate trucker like a log truck. A truck wreck attorney will be able to help sort out the rules the trucker and trucking company were supposed to follow beyond the ordinary rules of driving. Trucking injury cases can be complex and your truck wreck attorney's knowledge of the industry may be key to the case.
