Truck Accident Issues
All motor vehicle accidents have the potential to create significant disruptions in the lives of the persons involved. But the considerable size and weight difference between commercial trucks and passenger cars creates an imbalanced situation when trucks collide with other automobiles. As the victim of a truck accident, you may be left with serious injuries and extensive vehicle damage and it may be unclear which parties are legally liable for the harm that you have suffered. Unlike car crashes between two private motorists, wrecks involving trucks are complicated by corporate vehicle ownership and the responsibilities associated with this structure.
The Stevens Point truck accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, are committed to helping crash victims to identify the parties upon whom responsibility for a collision rests. This is a crucial step toward securing the financial compensation that you are due. Contact us today at 800-242-2874 to speak with a skilled and experienced attorney about your case.

- Negligent trucking company hiring

- Violation of hours of service regulations
