Accidents are an unfortunate part of life. They often result in injuries that are compensated only by a stubborn refusal to remain a disadvantaged victim. Loss of wages and medical bills coupled with the emotional trauma and physical pain following trucking accidents leaves many folks asking lots of questions – especially when they feel that the trucker is responsible for their loss.
We’ve compiled a free report composed of twenty-four articles about:
- What to Do After a Truck Accident
- Pursuing Your Claim
- Understanding Trucking Accidents
- Influencing Factors In a Trucking Accident Claim
- Regulations Affecting Liability
Lawsuits over tractor-trailer accidents involve numerous factors that compound the complexity of the cases. They are not the same as a typical car accident.
Circumstances such as the following must be considered:
- The extremely heavy and/or dangerous cargo that semis carry, such as logs, construction machinery, and poisonous or radioactive material.
- Catastrophic injuries (e.g., spinal cord, brain) and fatalities that may be the result of an 80,000+-pound tractor-trailer accident.
- The multiple defendants involved—the trucking company, affiliates, insurance companies and highway safety agencies.
- The out-of-state headquarters of defendants.
- Possible involvement of long-haul, sleep-deprived truck driver.
And those are only a few of the considerations that make truck accidents hard to handle. It doesn’t take long to realize that these are complex cases. Getting to the truth of what happened is difficult and takes a lot of skill and knowledge.
This report will increase your understanding of cases involving trucking accidents. While you’ll most likely need an attorney on your side to help extract information and prove fault, this guide is designed to help you understand what you’re up against, some of the many pieces you’ll need to prove your case, and technical aspects of liability and related legislations.
