Because of their massive loads at high speeds, trucks can pose lethal consequences when improperly operated or driven. This danger is compounded given the goals of many trucking companies — many truckers are under extreme pressure to meet deadlines, resulting in often inadequate safety precautions. The numbers are startling; according to truckinfo.net, drivers who collide with a truck are nearly five times more likely to be killed than a truck driver.
To make the situation even more precarious, proving liability in trucking accidents is more complex than for automobile accidents. These trucking companies often have significant resources dedicated to defending against claims. As such, even attorneys who specialize in truck accidents need additional resources to prove trucking accident liability in trucking accidents. Experts are needed to help with the following aspects of the case:
- Reconstructing the scene of the accident
- Analysis of forensic evidence from the accident
- Establishing liability to support the attorney's claims
