What is Truck Accident Law?
Truck accident law is a segment of law that covers (among other things) personal injuries sustained by parties involved in a collision with a commercial freight vehicle, usually an 18-wheeler, tractor trailer, or “big rig.” Typically, liability in these cases is premised on the doctrine of negligence. If the driver of the truck is found to be negligent, multiple areas of law will apply to your case, such as civil liability laws and traffic laws, as well as regulations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the Department of Transportation (DOT).
An accident involving a semi truck requires a different perspective than a standard automobile accident. The experienced injury attorneys at Carey Law Firm understand the distinctions between different types of cases and are available to advise you how to protect and defend your rights to redress and compensation.
For instance, semi-trucks or tractor trailers, like airplanes, often have black box controllers for the truck — GPS data about the truck, and documents that are necessary to determine if the truck driver had the appropriate amount of rest at the time of the wreck. This information is critical to making sure your rights are maintained. With the help of our tractor trailer accident lawyers, you can be sure that you can protect your rights and get the best possible outcome to your case.
