Thought truck accidents in Maine do not occur as frequent as other traffic accidents, the fact remains that they are the most dangerous ones due to their enormous weight and size. In addition to that, trucking accidents tend to be more complex because of the catastrophic injuries they often cause such as brain injury, spinal cord injuries, amputation, and wrongful death. As a result, the trucking and insurance companies will often attempt to minimize their liability to avoid or reduce paying compensation to victims. That is why it is essential to hire an experience Maine truck accident attorney immediately after the incident has occurred. Both the state and the federal government have passed laws that dictate how industrial vehicles can operate on the public roads, in order to protect the public from the dangerous consequences that can occur in a truck accident. When these laws are broken, it is essential to hold those responsible accountable for their actions.
