How are truck accident cases different from auto accident cases?
I’m often asked how are truck claims different than a car crash? Usually, truck cases involve much more serious injuries for one thing. Secondly, trucking cases are always system cases. In other words, if you have a wreck with another car, you’re not necessarily part of a large organization that is in charge of safety. In a trucking case, you always have to deal with the questions of supervision of the driver, training of the driver, and the qualifications of the driver before he ever took the job. Those are things that are important. These are the “three legs of the stool” in a trucking case, as I like to put it— the qualifications of the driver, training of the driver, and supervision of the driver. You don’t have those things in a car crash case, so system failure in every trucking case is an important part of a case that needs to be taken into consideration. If you have other questions like this, please give me a call at my office in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
