Legally Protect Yourself In Event Of A Logging Truck Accident

Each time the driver of a logging truck leaves private property and turns onto a public road, they know they’re at risk of a potentially dangerous logging truck accident. Not only does the driver have to worry about making a mistake such as failing to notice a traffic sign or not stopping in time, and mechanical problems that commonly plaque large work trucks, but there are also potential problems with the load that the drivers of other types of trucks simply don’t have to worry about. As the driver or owner of a log truck, you’re always one snapped chain away from a damaging liability lawsuit.

Montana has laws in place that stipulate Montana logging truck driver qualifications, the size of the load their allowed to haul, and even what time of year logging trucks allowed to use specific roads. If the logging truck is involved in the interstate transport of logging products, the owner is legally required to carry a minimum of $100,000 in liability insurance, which helps protect everyone involved if the vehicle is involved in an accident that results in injury or death. The insurance policy is designed to cover medical and legal expenses.

In the event that the worse happens, and you’re either the driver or the owner of a logging truck that’s involved in an accident resulting in an injury, you owe it to yourself to align yourself with a legal team that understand the nuances of Montana logging truck accidents, such as us.
