Why you should hire a truck accident lawyer
Truck accidents can be extremely complicated. There are often many potential causes and responsible parties to blame. The driver might have fallen asleep. The truck’s steering failed may have failed. There might have been shoddy work done at the truck owner’s maintenance garage.
Getting answers to these possibilities requires a lawyer who has experience with trucking accidents.
Additionally, the injuries and damage from big rig accidents are a lot worse than the damage from most auto accidents. The trucking industry is subject to different regulations than passenger cars. Tractor-trailers pose a unique set of hazards, and you need an experienced truck accident lawyer who understands the full extent of your losses and negotiate the best settlement.
