The Differences Between an Auto and Truck Accident

Were you involved in a car or truck accident causing serious injury?  Contact Buffalo Car Accident Attorney Richard Nicotra to fight for you.

As a dedicated Buffalo Car Accident Attorney, clients often ask about the differences in an auto accident and a truck accident.

  • When a potential client has been injured in an accident where the other vehicle is a tractor-trailer, their claim addresses several unique components not included in a typical two-car accident.
  • The Department of Transportation may conduct the initial investigation and examine the driver’s logbooks to ensure their accuracy. They also do a brake inspection.
  • A tractor-trailer driver may receive traffic tickets a regular car driver would never see. The truck’s load might be improperly balanced – or may have shifted. The driver’s CDL may be outdated, or he may have been driving for too many hours in a row.
  • Our team of lawyers is well versed in tractor-trailer accidents, from initial investigation through filing of all documentation created based upon the investigations of others.
