How Are Truck Accidents Different Than Car Accidents?
Negotiating a truck accident claim is complex. The damages are often greater than with car accidents and there are multiple parties involved including the trucking company, the truck driver, and sometimes multiple insurance companies. A truck accident is often caused by non-compliance with trucking regulations which set rules around distracted driving, maximum speed limits, consecutive driving time, logging requirements, maximum weight, loading constraints and other safety factors.
