When determining if a trucker failed to yield right-of-way and caused a collision, both common law and statutory law for the state that the accident occurred in must be considered. Common law requires that truckers use reasonable care when operating a large commercial vehicle. The laws can be complex, especially when it comes to the specific regulations that are enforced by your state. Hiring an experienced lawyer is the best way to handle a lawsuit like this in a smooth and efficient way.
While truck drivers frequently say, "I didn't see the car," just as often, our lawyers find truck drivers did not notice other vehicles because they were distracted with other things, such as texting while driving or other types of multitasking. Our lawyers represent injured drivers nationwide. We have extensive experience persuading insurance claims adjusters in addition to judges and juries that our clients deserve damages for pain and suffering after distracted truckers caused their accidents.
