Question: Are truck accident claims the same as a car accident?
If you’ve been involved in a truck accident claim, you need to know that it’s different than your typical automobile accident case. Truck companies are held to a higher standard than the typical driver. Trucking companies will hire these drivers and they have to do background checks. They have to monitor how long the drivers are driving, and make sure they get rest. They have to inspect and fix the trucks on a regular basis, keep logs, and keep records. It’s different than a typical automobile accident case.For instance, a good example would be the driver that injured Tracy Morgan, who was driving for Walmart. In that case, it was alleged that that driver had been driving for 20 hours longer than what he was supposed to and Walmart was held responsible for that. There are nuances and differences that an experienced attorney would know.
