Collisions with large trucks and commercial vehicles often result in serious injuries and death.
Operators of these vehicles are governed by a strict set of safety regulations. In addition to those regulations covering the safe operation of large trucks and commercial vehicles, there are also regulations pertaining to the maintenance of these vehicles. All of these regulations need to be carefully considered in preparing a claim for injuries or death that results from a collision with a large truck or commercial vehicle.
A significant problem with truck or commercial vehicle collision cases is proving whether the collision was caused by the negligence of the driver, or the failure of the driver’s employer to properly maintain the vehicle. This is why you need an attorney who will obtain the necessary records to identify what caused the collision. Many commercial vehicles store electronic data which reflects the operation of the vehicle prior to and at the time of the collision. This data must be obtained and analyzed in order to properly present your case and recover the compensation you deserve.
You need an attorney who is experienced and prepared to conduct the investigation necessary to win your case. Serious injuries from collisions with large trucks or commercial vehicles may require significant, if not a lifetime of medical care. You may also face a considerable amount of lost wages for which you should be compensated.
