Cases involving semi-truck accidents are different than a typical motor vehicle car accident case. The damage and injuries inflicted upon motorists in trucking accidents can be severe, often resulting in a catastrophic injury or death. The size and weight of semi- trailers are a significant contributing factor to the high fatality rate, as well as large blind spots, cell phone usage, texting, trucks not being adequately maintained, driver fatigue and, in some cases, the use of alcohol or drugs.
Obtaining the appropriate documents and materials from the defendant is a crucial step for the prosecution. There are many federal regulations governing the operation of semi-trailers and their drivers, as well as requirements for the creation of certain records and logbooks. These regulations and documentation may be vital to the prosecution of a trucking case.
