Tractor trailer cases are much more complex than cases involving noncommercial vehicles due to the additional safety requirements that truck drivers are required to follow. In Addition, the injuries in these cases are far more severe and require lawyers to have a greater knowledge/familiarity of the various medical treatments and procedures required to assist victims.
Lawyers on trucking cases need to have a familiarity of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Federal Highway Administration and the Georgia Department of Transportation Rules and regulations because this knowledge will help them determine relevant facts of your case related to liability. Specifically, these Rules and Regulations govern a truck driver’s qualification, hours the driver can be on the road, inspection of the truck, maintenance of the truck, insurance requirements, etc.
