Last week , I started writing about some mistakes to avoid in handling a truck accident case . You must have a expert witness who specializes in big trucks . This is an critical because the braking systems , steering systems and electronic information systems of the trucks are far different than that of a passenger car .

The common error missed by most plaintiff’s experts concern braking distances and even brake marks .
