As the demand for commercial goods and products grows, so does the number of large commercial trucks on our roadways in Post Falls and across Idaho. Increased demands mean increased profits for trucking companies, but it also means increased dangers for those sharing roads populated with large semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles.

Personal injury claims for commercial vehicles are different than regular automobile accidents. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a truck accident, it is imperative to be represented by an experienced truck accident attorney. Contact our office to schedule a free consultation about your accident and legal rights.
Commercial vehicles are designed to haul large quantities of goods. Unfortunately, the design that allows for large cargo loads also presents unique dangers, such as difficulty stopping, crushing impacts, and jackknife incidents. Due to the size and weight of commercial trucks, they are difficult to maneuver and cannot take evasive action to avoid accidents as easily as smaller vehicles can.
Collecting truck accident evidence begins with immediately securing all available records and data. After an accident, it is critical to obtain ECM records and truck driver logs as soon as possible. This data contains invaluable case information, such as the truck’s speed, whether or not the truck braked before the accident, and how many hours the driver had been operating the truck.
It is often necessary to hire experts to help with accident reconstruction. These experts can go over the accident scene, conduct a thorough investigation of the truck, and determine the facts and circumstances leading up to the accident. Our attorneys have excellent resources, including relationships with truck accident experts who we frequently hire to help prove truck accident claims.
