Are Florida truck accident claims more difficult than car accident claims?
In many instances, large truck accident claims can be more difficult than car accident claims. The reason is because there’s a lot of different entities involved in the trucking industry. Not only would the truck driver be responsible for any negligence, but if he was working at the time, his employer could be responsible for negligence and new damages. Additionally, if it was a mechanical defect, they could be responsible if there was a logistics company that was directing where the goods go, they could be responsible.
Also, the sheer size of semi-truck or trailers requires a lot of accident reconstruction and specialized experts. Not only in the field of accident reconstruction, but in mechanics. Also, there are special regulations that govern the trucking industry, so you would need experts and lawyers who know those laws in your case. I would suggest that you talk to a qualified trucking accident attorney in making your decision on whether you need to hire a counsel or not.
