A commercial truck accident is likely to be more catastrophic than one involving two passenger cars, simply because a fully loaded truck can weigh 25 times more than a typical car. Due to this drastic weight difference and the laws of physics, serious or even fatal injuries are common in these kinds of collisions.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation. However, you will need an attorney with special experience, since trucking accident cases are different than any other auto accident case. Frequently, different laws and regulations apply to trucking companies that ordinary automobile accident attorneys may not have the expertise to understand.

In addition, they will have established relationships with the unique experts needed to prove negligence and reconstruct the scene of the accident. Finally, they will demonstrate the ability to obtain all the documents that apply to your trucking accident case. At Monsees & Mayer, P.C. we have the experience, knowledge, and connections to handle even the most complicated of truck accident cases.
