Tractor trailer accidents have been on the rise over the past few years. Serious injuries often result when these large trucks crash into other vehicles on our nation’s highways. The force involved in a large truck collision is beyond anything we experience in our daily lives.
The increase in truck accidents has caused an increase in personal injury claims against negligent truck companies and negligent truck drivers. Many of the truck accident claims turn into lawsuits against the company and driver. Lawsuits against truck companies are detailed, complex, and very expensive. Because of this, it is essential to contact a truck accident law firm in Las Cruces that is experienced in handling serious injury and death cases related to trucking accidents.
The trucking industry is governed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR), a detailed set of rules enacted to help keep our nation’s highways and roadways safe. The facts of each truck accident need to be studied and compared to the FMCSR to see if the truck company and the truck driver were in violation at the time of the tractor-trailer crash. Finding violations of the FMCSR is only one part of properly handling a truck accident case.
Trucking litigation is expensive because numerous experts are usually required to prove certain aspects of the personal injury case. It is common to retain an accident Reconstructionist, an economist, an FMCSR expert, medical experts, etc. In addition to the expense, truck cases are extremely time-consuming. It is common for a trucking case to last two or three years, sometimes longer.
In a recent Las Cruces truck accident case, it was discovered the defendant truck driver did not speak English. The truck driver claimed he could not understand the questions he was asked during his deposition. To an experienced truck accident lawyer from Law Office of Samuel I. Kane, P.A. in Las Cruces this case would be something they could handle.
