My sister suffered a bad injury to her head and neck after an auto accident with a truck.

Additional Information:

My sister had a pretty bad injury to her head and neck after an auto accident. She was riding as a guest when her car was involved in an accident with an 18 wheeler on Route 495 in Bolton.  When your auto is involved in an accident with a commercial truck are the laws or compensation any different?  Do we need to hire someone who specializes in truck accidents?

ATTORNEY ANSWER:

While you don’t need a lawyer who specializes in truck accidents, you should look for a lawyer who is familiar with trucking laws and the department of transportation but who also practices general tort litigation. There are numerous laws that deal with rules and regulations that truck drivers and owners of trucks must follow and that attorney should have a general knowledge of those laws. More importantly you  should  chose a lawyer with experience handling tort cases and one who is willing to litigate the case if necessary.
