Semi-Truck Accidents in Idaho
Many truck drivers in America are hard-working individuals who put in long hours to make sure that our grocery stories, drug stores, and shopping centers are stocked with the things we need to live our daily lives. Unfortunately, some truck companies place the bottom line over public safety. They may demand that their drivers put in longer hours than is required by law, adhere to irresponsible schedules, or require their drivers to complete shipments faster than is reasonable. In some cases, companies will overload their truck beds. This can result in shred tires and, in some cases, may result in the truck tipping over. Some truck companies fail to properly maintain their equipment. Failure to perform routine maintenance or to properly evaluate equipment can have terrible consequences for innocent drivers on the road. Furthermore, truck companies are required to train their drivers in proper risk management and safety. Idaho law protects you from negligence and irresponsible driving. Moreover, you are also protected if the driver of the truck was found to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
If you have been involved in an accident involving a truck or feel that you are entitled to make a wrongful death claim against a truck company, contact the Law Firm of Johnson & Lundgreen, P.C. today.

Truck Accident Claims Differ from Passenger Vehicle Claims
Truck accident claims in Boise Idaho can differ from passenger vehicle claims because truck companies are required to abide by federal laws that specifically apply to commercial vehicles and to trucks. These laws, when broken, can mean that the truck company or driver was negligent in your accident. Some trucking laws include hours of service laws that limit how long a truck driver can be behind the wheel, how often the trucks must undergo maintenance, and loading requirements.
Truck claims can also differ from passenger vehicle claims because multiple parties may be responsible for paying your claim. Truck drivers, truck companies, and even truck manufacturers may be responsible for paying your truck accident claim. The Boise Idaho truck accident lawyers at Johnson & Lundgreen, P.C. may be able to identify responsible parties and seek damages from them.
Finally, truck claims can differ from passenger vehicle claims because of the sheer size of these vehicles. Injuries stemming from truck crashes can be more serious than injuries stemming from passenger vehicle accidents. The truck accident lawyers in Boise Idaho at Johnson & Lundgreen, P.C. may be able to help you and your family seek compensation and justice for your injuries
