How are truck accident cases different from those involving car accidents?
Truck drivers receive training and are certified operators of trucks who must drive their vehicles with due care in accordance with certain regulations and laws that apply to commercial truck drivers. Thus, truck drivers are held to a higher standard than standard motorists, and their cases are frequently worth much more than the usual accident claim because of the resources of the trucking companies.
Furthermore, truck drivers are required to comply with stringent federal and state guidelines concerning the amount of hours they drive, repair schedules, warning signals, the kind of freight that is transported and on what roads the freight is transported. Lack of compliance with such guidelines could be the cause of a collision.
