Rockford Truck Accident Lawyers

A high percentage of traffic crashes and deaths involve large trucks. A large truck is any truck that weighs more than 10,000 pounds. Because of their size, crashes involving large trucks are more likely to result in serious injury and death than most other car crashes are. Large trucks are also more likely to be involved in multiple-vehicle crashes than other vehicle types are.

Both federal and state regulations govern trucking and cover areas such as equipment safety and the number of hours truckers can drive without stopping to rest. Trucking companies are required to keep records of such information, and it will be necessary to find and research this documentation. Poor equipment and driver fatigue can easily cause crashes, and a careful study of the trucking company's records may be needed to determine if negligence has occurred.
