Complexities with Truck Accident Cases
Truck accident cases are typically more difficult to manage than the average car accident case. Why? The answer lies in two things: industry regulations and injuries.
The trucking industry is regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). There are numerous rules created by this agency, and most are in place to make trucking safer for truck drivers and motorists alike. When a truck driver violates an FMCSA regulation, they are practically guaranteed to make the roads less safe for others, which should increase their liability.
Important FMCSA trucking regulations include:
- Limited truck weight to 80,000 pounds
- Limited truck speed limits on most roads
- Limited daily and weekly schedules
- Cargo securement requirements
What Are Some Common Truck Accident Injuries?
A truck accident is highly likely to result in catastrophic injuries. When a claim involves life-changing injuries, the damage total owed to the claimant will go up, as will the insurance company’s resolve to defend against that claim. As such, if you have been severely injured in a crash, you should expect your truck accident claim to be complicated, which means getting the assistance of a truck accident attorney in Myrtle Beach will be more important than ever.
Truck accident victims often suffer these injuries:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injury or paralysis
- Multiple broken bones
- Permanent scarring or disfigurement
If you lost a loved one in a violent truck accident, then we can assist you with a wrongful death claim as well. This type of claim is essentially a personal injury claim, but it is filed on behalf of the deceased. We know how to pursue these claims but in a way that respects your emotional well-being during such a difficult time. You won’t feel pushed or pressured to progress your case or make a decision that you don’t think is correct. We’re here to provide as moral support as we do legal guidance.
