Trucking accident cases can be very complicated cases and they require the use of experts in trucking operations, from the administration in the company, all the way down to maintenance of the trucks, and to making sure that the trucks are rolling down the highway, as they should be. Also trucking accident cases involve typically very serious injuries, whether its brain damage, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, sometimes wrongful death, and those kinds of injuries require the use of very experienced experts, who can talk about those sorts of things. That's why it's important to hire somebody who really has a lot of experience doing trucking accidents. In a trucking accident case, many times we look at the potential defendant, as being of course the driver and the driver's typically employed by a company that owns the truck, and then oftentimes they are hired by companies that are shipping whatever goods they are shipping. So all of those people can be potentially involved in the case, and as well as the people who maintain the truck. Oftentimes trucking accidents occur because the brakes haven't been maintained properly, or the tires haven't been maintained properly. Typically, the statute of limitations that would apply in a trucking accident case would be the same as a personal injury case, here in California that would be two years from the date of the accident.
