We encounter large commercial trucks every day on our streets and highways. As they weigh significantly more than other motor vehicles, tracker-trailers, semi-trucks, dump trucks and delivery trucks can cause devastating accidents. Trucks can rear-end your car, unexpectantly jackknife or rollover, or cause damage from wide turns or losing cargo.
Often, truck drivers work for a company, headquartered in another state. There could be many parties involved when investigating a trucking accident, including the trucking company, the truck driver, the owner of the cargo, and their individual insurance providers. All trucks must follow state and federal laws, so it is important that investigators verify that those governing laws were obeyed. It can often be challenging to determine and prove who is liable for causing a trucking accident.
Commercial trucks are equipped with a black box that contains vital information, including but not limited to the trucks speed, breaking, stopping and acceleration information, and where the truck was before the crash. It is important for a truck accident attorney to get that information preserved before it is degraded or destroyed. Very often, trucking accidents require the help of trucking and/or accident reconstruction experts to assist in interpreting the obtained information and in preparing a cogent and strong claim.
