Tractor-Trailer Accident Cases: One Mistake Our Attorneys Never Make
Sadly, many motor vehicle accident lawyers make the mistake of handling tractor-trailer accident cases like a car accident case. However, cases involving commercial vehicles are much more complex.
They often involve evaluating:
- Whether the trucking company followed safety protocols and met the minimum safety fitness standards in the industry;
- Whether the trucking company has a poor safety record or insurance claim history; and
- Whether the incident involved any of the seven Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Categories (e.g. driver alcohol impairment).
At our firm, we take these cases very seriously. We understand the law and know how to conduct a thorough investigation into these types of accidents to dig deep into your case. We often utilize third-party trucking experts to help evaluate our cases.
