Truck cases require special attention and experience.View transcript
MR. IRA SLAVIT: Representing the victim of a truck accident as opposed to car accident, there are addition considerations that need to be given. Trucks, which are over 10,000 pounds, are subject to additional federal regulations and guidelines. The drivers are subject to additional regulations and they also must maintain log books. Some of the factors that are unique to truck accidents are drivers that have worked too many hours or trucks that are loaded in an unstable way so that they create a problem, or trucks that are not maintained properly. It's important to have attorneys who are experienced and know what laws need to be looked into and enforced in handling that type of case. If you've been injured in a truck accident, please call Levine & Slavit as soon as possible.
