Helping Victims Of Serious Truck Accidents For More Than 50 Years

Truck accidents are different from accidents involving regular automobiles in several ways:

  • Because the vehicles are larger, the injuries tend to be more severe.
  • Trucking companies' insurers work hard to minimize their financial liability.
  • Trucks must follow federal trucking regulations that don't apply to noncommercial vehicles. When investigating the causes of accidents, a lawyer will need to understand these federal trucking regulations.
