What caused the truck accident?
Commercial truck accidents generally involve a range of issues not usually seen in other motor vehicle accidents. Regulations issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Maryland Department of Transportation can affect the potential liability of the truck owner. Accident reconstructionists and other experts must consider such factors as load shift, gross vehicle weight, stopping distance, vehicle maintenance and the presence of hazardous materials. Varying insurance coverages for the tractor-trailer may complicate assessments of potential liability. Lawyers from Sasscer, Clagett & Bucher have been involved in truck accident litigation on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants in many counties in Maryland. Our attorneys have considerable experience in investigating and litigating accidents arising from the operation of, and even the loading and unloading of commercial motor vehicles, including tractor trailers.

Depending on the circumstances of an accident with a commercial motor vehicle there may be several insurance policies that cover losses due to injuries. Our lawyers will see that there is a full investigation of such matters and will identify and coordinate all insurance claims to provide you with the greatest benefit.
