Help For Those Injured In Truck Accident
Accidents involving semi trucks and other commercial motor vehicles are more complex than the standard automobile accident. Knowledge and understanding of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations are imperative in handling cases involving semi trucks and other commercial vehicles. Furthermore, immediate steps need to be taken to preserve the evidence necessary to determine negligence.
The personal injury attorneys of Soroka & Associates, LLC, have the necessary knowledge and experience to litigate a case involving a commercial vehicle. We have helped many people recover ample compensation after suffering injuries or the loss of loved ones in such cases.
Why Truck Accidents Differ From Other Traffic Accident Cases
Due to the size and weight of semi trucks and other transport vehicles, trucking accidents often cause severe, catastrophic injuries to the people inside the other involved vehicle. Along with the truck driver, the trucking company may be liable for these injuries if the injuries were caused, at least in part, by the trucking company’s negligence.
Negligence can manifest in a variety of ways. For instance, to meet strict deadlines, trucking companies often overschedule their drivers. This can lead to drowsy drivers more likely to be involved in accidents. Other dangerous practices include improper vehicle maintenance, improper tire maintenance, braking problems, overloading and driver error, all of which can lead to on-the-road accidents.
Injuries caused by trucking accidents are typically life-changing injuries. You deserve to hold the appropriate parties accountable and to receive just compensation.
