Tractor-Trailer Accident Attorneys

A truck crash is different from a car crash. First, the accident is likely very serious — cars do not stand up well in collisions with 40-ton vehicles, so the chances of catastrophic injury or death are very high. Second, the truck is a commercial vehicle, usually owned and operated by a business. Finally, truck accidents require research and particular knowledge. The owners of both truck and trailer are often out of state and hard to locate. Your lawyer needs to be knowledgeable about the Federal Motor Carrier Act and all the special state and federal laws that apply to commercial vehicles.
