Why Truck Accident Cases Tend to Be Complex
There are two primary reasons why truck accident cases tend to be so complex. First, it is often very difficult to discern what caused a truck accident at first glance. There may be many “invisible” factors at play that may only be revealed through an investigation. For example, the truck driver involved may have been inadequately trained. The trucking company that employs the trucker may have pressured the employee to drive while they were extraordinarily fatigued. There may have been something wrong with the brakes that the manufacturer could be held liable for.
Second, as has already been vaguely alluded to, there are often multiple defendants named in a truck accident lawsuit. It is rare that a single actor (or factor) is the sole reason why a truck crashes. Far more often, manufacturers of auto parts, trucking companies, truck drivers, others involved in the accident, and even government agencies tasked with road maintenance are named in lawsuits. When more than one defendant is named in a case, a strong case must be built up in re: that party in order for the plaintiff to succeed on all of their claims.
If you have been recently injured in an accident involving a large commercial truck, it is critically important that you connect with a reputable personal injury attorney as quickly as you possibly can. Why? Truck accident cases are notoriously complex. Waiting to connect with the reputable and dedicated legal team at John K. Zaid & Associates may lead to the loss or compromise of evidence that could prove to be critical to the outcome of your case. Additionally, speaking with insurance representatives on your own could unintentionally lead to the devaluation of your case.
