Our Skilled Injury Attorneys Know How To Pursue Truck Accident Claims
Truck accidents differ from car accidents in a variety of ways. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury in a truck wreck, it is important that you choose an attorney experienced in these types of cases, rather than an attorney who just handles car accidents. Here’s why.
Semitrucks are a common sight on the highways of Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. In order to keep highways safe, drivers of these commercial vehicles must adhere to specific laws. For example, they can only spend a certain number of hours per day behind the wheel. Unfortunately, these laws are often broken by truck drivers and trucking companies trying to transport goods as quickly as possible.
Many truck accidents are caused by driver fatigue that could have been prevented if the driver would have simply followed the rules and taken the required breaks.
At the law firm of Manzi, Seccareccio & Merwin, P.C., we are well-versed in the laws that apply specifically to truck drivers and how these laws impact the development of accident claims. When we handle trucking accident cases, we investigate thoroughly to determine what happened and who is to blame.
The Trucking Industry
There are strategies that truck drivers and trucking companies use to cover up their negligence after an accident. In some instances, truck drivers may keep two logbooks: one that makes it look like they were following the rules and taking the appropriate breaks, and one that shows all the hours they truly spent on the road so they can get paid appropriately.
With over 50 years of cumulative experience, our personal injury lawyers also know the trucking industry. Instead of trusting logbooks, we strive to recover black box information from the truck and other evidence to show exactly how the semitruck was used.
With solid evidence on our side, we can build strong cases designed to get full compensation.
