Truck Accident Law

Truck accidents can be among the most dangerous on the road, even though they only make up about 8% of all accidents. Part of that reason is their size and weight, making them far less maneuverable, especially in an emergency. There are laws requiring truck drivers to have higher skills than automobile drivers. In addition, truck drivers are required to have sufficient rest, to be tested more often for substance abuse, to maintain limits on how much freight they carry, and more. When a truck is involved in a traffic accident, there is a driver-log showing driving times versus rest times and most have a "black box" that contains even more detailed information to help determine the cause. However, there are also additional safety precautions that other drivers should take when driving near a truck. It can be difficult to sort through the causes of a truck accident and understand the related truck accident law. A truck accident attorney has the experience and training you may need to solve your truck accident questions.
