A truck accident can be a very different legal animal from a car accident. The scope of the destruction alone often distinguishes a truck accident from a car accident. Commercial vehicle accidents can result in catastrophic injuries and even death. The law that governs these areas, therefore, is often more complicated than the law involving car accidents.

Holding Companies Responsible for Negligent Behavior
Because truck accidents often involve commercial vehicles, determining who is responsible for your injuries becomes more involved. Perhaps the driver was so tired that he or she should not have been driving. Perhaps the trucking company failed to perform maintenance on its trucks to keep them in safe condition. The company may have not followed proper procedures when hiring the driver. Besides examining the facts concerning the private company, our firm will also investigate whether your injuries may have been caused by a city or county not properly keeping its roads in a safe condition.
