Lawrenceville Truck Accident Lawyers

Truck accidents differ from car accidents in many ways. On the surface, the size of a truck means that these accidents are more likely to result in catastrophic injuries to the victim or victims in the other vehicle. This is not the only distinction. There are many others, and a personal injury lawyer's understanding of those distinctions can mean the difference between success and failure in a truck accident claim.

Violations Of Trucking Industry Regulations

At the Lowendick Law Office, our attorneys know that the regulations that apply to truck drivers and trucking companies are much more stringent than those that apply to ordinary drivers. When we investigate these claims, we frequently find that a violation of trucking industry regulations was the cause of the collision.

Truck drivers may spend more than the allowed number of hours behind the wheel, leading to accidents caused by driver fatigue. Trucking companies may fail to follow the proper maintenance schedule, leading to accident-causing maintenance problems like brake failure or tire blowouts. The truck may be overloaded, causing an increase in braking distance. We will find out exactly what form of negligence took place, and we will hold our opponents accountable for the damage done.

Insurance Issues In Truck Accident Cases

Due to the dangers a truck brings to the road, these vehicles tend to have substantially larger insurance policies. The driver of a car is only required to have $25,000 of liability insurance, which is often not enough when severe injuries are involved. We make certain that the larger truck insurance policy is used appropriately to provide you the compensation you need.
