When an individual is injured in a truck accident case he is faced with medical bills, lost time from work, and physical disability or damages of varying degrees. If you are or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, contact the attorneys at Traffic Law Center immediately.
In truck accident cases there are many factors that go into establishing liability and recovering damages. Frankly, when trucks are involved, it's not usually a little fender-bender type of case. And settling these cases is more complex, too. Many trucking companies will vigorously defend their drivers, because if their drivers are found at fault in an accident case, the company's insurance rates go up. Perhaps the cause of the accident had to do with faulty equipment or driver fatigue. Equipment maintenance records or driver logs are important pieces of evidence in the handling of these cases. There are D.O.T. inspection reports and driver CDL records to review.
