In a trucking crash, procedurally they’re very similar to a car crash. Many times, most times with truck crashes, though, there are different federal regulations that are involved, there are different over-the-road rules that are involved and those are all things that we explore and make part of the lawsuit. Sometimes, because trucks are usually over-the-road truckers or national companies, a trucking case might be in federal court instead of in state court and we, at Gibson Lewis, have experience in both federal and state court and to us it doesn’t matter where the case is, we’re gonna represent our client just the same.
