Time can be of the essence in truck accident cases in Kentucky

Companies in Kentucky and across the nation rely on semi-trucks to transport their goods from one place to another. Because of semi-trucks, and those who drive them, a person in Kentucky can enjoy oranges grown in Florida, for instance, as well as having available to them other goods from all across America. Semi-trucks are an integral part of commerce in the United States.

Unfortunately, semi-trucks can be difficult to handle, even in the best of circumstances. Oftentimes this leads to truck accidents. It is sometimes the case that the cause of a semi-truck accident boils down to the driver or truck company failing to live up to its duty of care. For example, truck drivers must follow regulations regarding how long they can be on the road before taking a rest break. If a truck driver fails to follow these laws, or if their employer encourages the driver to break them in order to make faster deliveries, this could lead to driver fatigue and ultimately a truck accident.

Some might think that truck accident cases are relatively straightforward. After all, a standard automobile is simply no match for an 80,000-pound semi-truck traveling down the highway at 65 miles per hour. However, things are not always so clear-cut. One has to prove the truck driver was at fault. Truck drivers must maintain a log of how long they have been on the road, but these books can be inaccurate or altered. When pursuing a claim after a truck accident, it is important for people to seek the help of those who are able to uncover evidence that will show the truck driver was at fault.
