http://www.chrishudsonlaw.com/ Trucking accidents often result in serious, debilitating and permanent injuries. For the obvious reason, a tractor trailer is much larger and heavier than a car. In fact, a fully loaded tractor trailer may weigh up to 80,000 pounds. The average weight of a car is 4,000 pounds. Therefore in an accident involving a car and semi truck, serious or deadly results often occur.
Such a serious accident requires an attorney who has the knowledge, experience, and resources to properly handle the claim. Trucking accident claims are much more complex than car accident claims. Trucking accident claims involve federal regulations, multiple defendants, extensive documents and records, and the need to examine the vehicle’s electronic control module, which reports data such as speed and brake system at the time of the accident.
If you are involved in a truck accident, you should immediately seek the advice of a lawyer that is familiar with trucking accidents. It is very important that your lawyer send out a letter immediately, requiring the insurance company to preserve any relevant evidence and data following the accident. Remember, insurance carriers have teams of claims adjusters and lawyers on standby to immediately start defending the claim. You deserve an experienced team on your side.
