Why are truck accidents more complicated than other types of crashes?

The trucking industry is heavily regulated, and safety violations are often the cause of trucking accidents. That means you need someone one your side to investigate the crash, and that person needs to know the laws and regulations pertaining to the trucking industry. In addition, trucking companies and their insurers typically have their own legal teams ready to minimize payouts to injury victims, so it’s important to have a truck accident lawyer on your side to protect your rights and interests. A truck accident may also require a thorough accident reconstruction to determine who was at fault, and a skilled truck accident attorney can work with experts in accident reconstruction to build a strong case on your behalf. All of these factors make truck accidents more complicated than other types of accidents.

Who can be held responsible for a truck accident?

The the trucking company, the truck manufacturer, the truck driver, the party responsible for safely loading the truck, other car drivers who may have contributed to the crash, and any of these parties’ insurance companies may be liable for a truck accident. At Jody D. Peterman, LLC, we explore every possible avenue for getting our clients the compensation they deserve.
