Overcoming Challenges In Tractor-Trailer Accident Cases
The laws that govern truck drivers and the trucking industry are different than those that apply to other drivers. These laws are designed specifically to prevent these large vehicles from causing harm to other parties that they share the road with. When we begin investigating tractor-trailer accident cases, the first thing we look for is whether or not any of these laws were violated.
Not surprisingly, we frequently find that they have been. We find that drivers have spent too many hours on the road. We find that trucks haven’t been maintained properly. We find that loads are too heavy. We find the evidence we need to prove their liability.
