Q: Does it matter if my Atlanta truck accident injuries were caused by a crash with an out of state tractor trailer or a local box truck?
A:Yes, the difference in your injuries, physical recovery, and legal rights may be significant depending on which type of truck caused your accident. Generally, larger trucks tend to result in more significant property damage and physical injuries than do smaller trucks. Your physical recovery may be more painful and may take longer if you were hurt in an Atlanta tractor trailer crash.
Additionally, your Atlanta truck accident lawyer may go about your case differently if you were hurt by an out of state big rig. Large trucks that engage in interstate commerce often have to meet strict regulations imposed by the federal government. Your Atlanta truck attorney will investigate to make sure that the truck, the trucking company, and the truck driver complied with those requirements and may advise you to bring a lawsuit against more than one defendant.
