Trucking Accidents: Not Just Another Auto Case
When a motor vehicle accident involves a truck, the stakes are often higher.
The companies who own the trucks often have procedures in place to minimize liability wherever possible. Truck drivers are provided with extensive training on what to do if an accident happens and what not to do on the scene of an accident. This can even involve calling a company hotline before dialing 911.
But there are many things a plaintiff can do to prevail in such a case, through an attorney who is experienced in Philadelphia accidents involving trucks:
- Evaluate the driver’s background and employment file
- Review the company’s hiring practices
- Study the truck itself: its design, safety features and any data recorded before the accident
- Analyze the driver’s handwritten logs
There are a number of issues that arise with accidents like these. We offered advice to other attorneys on how to approach a trucking accident case in this article.
