Chicago Injury lawyer Scott DeSalvo reveals the thing you should know if you have been in a truck accident.
Knowing this is important because having the right information for your kind of case will help you win your case. It will also help you know if your lawyer is taking the right steps to put your case together correctly.
What You Should Know In A Truck Accident
First, witnesses to how a truck accident happened are key. However, almost all trucks are now equipped with computers called “black boxes” that record time, speed and maneuvers right before a crash. Having this information can make or break a case.
Second, truckers are limited in the amount of time they can drive. Fatigued driving is one of the main causes of crashes on our highways. Also, truckers have to keep log books, which are records of how much driving they have been doing.
Third, trucks do not handle as well or stop as fast as cars do. Some truck crashes are caused by other drivers not realizing this. That is why you need to give truckers respect on the road.
Fourth, because of the size, speed and weight of semi-trucks, the injuries tend to be more serious than I see in car crashes. Heavier weight and speed means tremendous amounts of force and cars being totaled.
Truck crashes can result in the most serious kinds of injuries I see. If you have been hurt in a truck crash, do not go about it alone. Lawyers give free consultations in person or on the phone. Make sure you deal with a lawyer who you feel comfortable with.
