TRACTOR TRAILER ACCIDENTS
When you are in a tractor trailer accident you should seek legal guidance to ensure your case is handled correctly as there are many complicated laws and pit falls that you need to be navigated through. This holds especially true should the insurance company or opposing party wish to take the claim to court rather than settle.
Trucking companies are aware of their own legal liability and typically document their employees’ hours behind the wheel along with maintenance checks. This is a major difference between a trucking accident and a typical car accident; trucking companies are very experienced in these matters and likely have a legal team readily available to them. This is a huge reason to speak with a legal representative immediately so that the big companies don’t take advantage of your naiveté.
If you are involved in a truck accident you could be entitled to compensation for injuries sustained, damage to vehicles, and wages lost. Being knowledgeable about your rights can ensure that justice is fully enforced and reparations are paid.
