The Importance Of Seeking Legal Representation For Truck Accident Injuries
There are two main reasons why truck accident cases are different from other motor vehicle accident cases and why getting experienced legal representation is vital.
1. License And Rule Requirements
Unlike passenger drivers, commercial truck drivers operating heavy vehicles are required to obtain a commercial driver’s license. CMV drivers must comply with state and federal regulations that do not apply to other drivers. These regulations apply to everything from the number of hours they can drive to the maintenance of the truck.
Furthermore, interstate truck drivers must be equipped with an event data recorder. This often becomes a critical piece of evidence in truck accident cases.
2. Multiple Parties
There are often multiple parties involved in a truck accident case that could be at fault — a big reason why 18-wheeler accident cases are so complex.
The driver of the truck could be at fault, due to drug or alcohol abuse or driver fatigue. The trucking company, the truck manufacturer or the manufacturer of truck components, such as brakes or engine parts, could also be responsible.
