As collisions between a car and a motorcycle often involve serious injuries, collisions between a truck and a car often result in serious injury or even death. Sometimes in truck collisions the insurance company will deny a claim for no other reason than to protect the driving record of the truck driver. Truck drivers must follow the specific State and Federal regulations. It is important to retain a law firm that understands these rules. An immediate and thorough investigation of the driving record of the driver of the truck, his “logs” and the condition of the truck trailer are essential.
