Most truck accidents occur on highways and interstates. Because of this, accidents involving trucks can be more severe due to:
The speed of the truck
The mass of the truck
The force of collision
Even accidents that seem minor can produce catastrophic results due to the force applied by a truck at impact.
State and federal laws provide for greater oversight of truck drivers than car drivers. This means that truck accidents can be more complicated than run-of-the-mill car accidents. An experienced lawyer knows to immediately send a letter to the truck owner to preserve relevant evidence (electronic data, hourly log books, etc.). The sooner the letter is sent, the more likely the evidence is preserved.
If you are a victim of a truck accident, you should contact a lawyer immediately to preserve evidence that might be needed to win your case.
