Accidents caused by commercial trucks and the corporations that operate them are often serious. Trucking companies sometimes push their drivers to work beyond safe limits, and ignore other safety rules, all in the interest of maximizing profits. There are also intertwining corporate relationships that come into play, which can require a truck accident lawyer to look beyond just the truck driver and his direct employer.
The transportation industry is carefully regulated with the goal of promoting safety and avoiding injuries and death. Trucking litigation often revolves around the application of those rules to the facts of the case.
When a serious commercial truck accident occurs, the trucking company’s insurer will have lawyers and other representatives on the scene, often before the wreckage is even cleared away. So it can be important for you to act fast, before important information and evidence is lost, hidden or destroyed.
If investigation reveals that a valid injury or wrongful death claim exists, litigation may be necessary before full and fair compensation is achieved.
