State and local regulations monitor the trucking industry. They ensure semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles operate safely. Regulations regarding truck maintenance, driver eligibility, and cargo capacity are but a few meant to ensure public safety. Depending on the speed a semi is traveling and how much it weighs, it can take up to three times longer to stop than a passenger car. Moreover, truck accidents are five times more likely to cause serious injuries and death than accidents involving two or more passenger vehicles.
If you’ve been injured it’s important to know how to prepare your personal injury insurance claim. There are a few points to take into consideration. For example, its important to find out whether or not the semi-truck driver’s CDL license was active or suspended during the accident, whether the truck driver has a criminal record, how many tickets the truck driver previously received, or even whether the truck driver’s cargo load was over the legal limit. This list of examples can go on but, in a semi-truck accident case, those examples would be crucial evidence to proving negligence. Semi-truck accidents can be deadly no matter who demonstrated negligence. The best advice for this scenario is to stay awake and keep your eyes open because anything can happen within a blink of an eye while on the road.
