Due to their size, weight, and load, large commercial and industrial trucks are the goliaths of the highways in Idaho. In the event of a collision with another vehicle, the larger truck will no doubt inflict massive amounts of damage to the other vehicle and its passengers. To avoid such a disastrous event, the United States government has passed numerous regulations specifically outlining how trucking companies can transport goods and travel on public roads and highways. Unfortunately, there are times when the trucking industry will purposely violate these laws such as overloading a vehicle or demanding that truckers drive long hours without rest in order to meet deadlines and save money. This is simply inexcusable when considering the potential harm they are imposing onto the public. To make matters worse, when a truck accident occurs, trucking companies will often send an agent or agents to the scene of the collision with intent to limit or mitigate their company's liability. This is why it is imperative to contact an Idaho truck accident attorney immediately after the accident, because only an attorney will have your best interest in mind.
