Most car accident attorneys believe a truck accident case can be handled just like a typical car accident case. Nothing is further from the truth. Here are just a few of the things that make tractor-trailer accidents unique:
- Size and weight of the tractor-trailer makes the handling and stopping of the vehicle different from a car;
- Electronic data generated by the tractor-trailer’s electronic control module (ECM) is critical to understanding and proving the cause of the accident;
- Global Positioning System (GPS) data is complex and super important to proving the truck driver’s conduct leading up to the accident;
- There are thousands of regulations governing the conduct of truck drivers and truck companies. These regulations are called the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.
