Santa Cruz Truck Accident Lawyer
Things to Know if You’ve Been Injured in a Truck (Big Rig) Accident in Santa Cruz County
Truck (big rig) accidents have an entirely different complexity to them than traditional automobile accidents. Due to the nature of big rigs carrying large and heavy loads, the federal government and states have imposed strict regulations on truck drivers such as how many hours a truck driver may drive without rest. These strict guidelines require truck drivers to maintain driving logs with exact driving times and corresponding rest times.
Many of the major truck accidents throughout our country involve truck drivers who have violated the sleep regulations. With the help of appropriate experts, violations that many attorneys normally might miss can be discovered, and these often can lead to large settlements. There is almost no such thing as a minor accident involving a big rig.
