If you've been injured in a truck accident, you may face a more complex case than you would if you were in a car accident. In truck accidents, the ownership, regulation and liability associated with commercial trucking generally makes for more complicated personal injury cases. The following are some factors that may affect your truck accident case:

  • The semi truck may be owned by one person and the trailer by another.
  • The warehouse may have loaded the truck unsafely.
  • The trucking company may have failed to conduct a background check on the driver.
  • Vehicle maintenance may not comply with Federal standards.

Trucking companies and their insurers take aggressive action to limit their losses. If you are involved with a commercial trucking accident, the insurance companies may pressure you to sign a formal statement within hours of the accident, hoping to catch you off-guard.
