Truck Accident Ct

When you or someone you love has been injured or even killed in a truck accident, the last thing that comes to your mind is suing for compensation. However, if you are the victim of a truck driver's negligence, you are entitled to have a truck accident attorney review your case and file a claim if it is warranted. If so, you must next decide where to file your suit. In most truck accidents, both state and federal courts have jurisdiction because there are federal laws governing interstate commerce and the regulation of big trucks. While federal courts are more complicated, state courts may not be appropriate if any of the parties are located out of state. The location of your truck accident court may depend on the insight of both truck accident lawyers and their strategy for the best courtroom in which to present their case.

Fast Facts

  • Even if a plaintiff chooses to file a claim to be heard in state truck accident court, the defendant's insurers or employers may request to "remove" the case to federal court, and such requests, if they are timely, are often granted.
