Truck accident laws are different from auto accident laws
Vehicular accident law is a part of a much larger body of law called personal injury law. Although truck accident law is one type of vehicular accident law, the laws that govern it are very different from auto accident law because both federal and state laws are involved.
When dealing with a truck accident case it is vital to understand all the complex details of commercial motor vehicle law and federal regulations of trucks involved in interstate commerce. These include hours of service requirements, drug and alcohol testing, understanding truck mechanics, driver requirements, and commercial insurance.
Due to the size of a truck, the injuries and damage caused by a truck accident are more likely to be catastrophic and even fatal. Therefore, the federal regulations are designed specifically to protect victims from trucking company negligence.
