Semi-truck accidents are very dangerous and they create more damage than any other kind of accident on Oregon’s motorways. Litigating semi-truck accident cases is different from litigating other personal injury and auto accident cases because the stakes are so much higher.
Trucking accidents can be classified as rear-end collisions, sloshing accidents, battery fire accidents, fuel oil fire accidents, rollover accidents, and more. As is the case in any type of motor vehicle accident, in order to make a recovery in any of these kinds of trucking accident cases it will be necessary to prove negligence on the part of the semi-truck driver and/or the trucking company.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and Oregon state law heavily regulate the trucking industry. A violation of these regulations can constitute negligence so it is critical that you work with an experienced Oregon semi-truck accident law firm rather than a law firm that only occasionally handles trucking accidents.
Insurance companies each have a team of adjusters, investigators, and semi-truck accident attorneys whose primary responsibility is to limit the insurer’s liability and to minimize the amount of money paid out to injured parties. It is imperative for semi-truck accident victims to have a similar teams watching out for their needs.
