Motor Carrier Operations

A crash involving a truck is very different from a crash involving just automobiles. Truck crashes are complex and require specialized expertise in order to explore all aspects of the case. Commercial truck collisions involve employees and employers (companies) and are subject to different state and federal rules and regulations compared to personal vehicles. Our experts analyze logs and company files, as well as critique professional drivers and their training, to identify issues that are relevant to the cause of a collision. By combining trucking safety experts and ASE certified mechanics with engineers and reconstructionists who understand trucks and their dynamics, we provide a comprehensive analysis of all aspects of a truck crash. Ruhl Forensic, Inc. staff members have consulted and testified in numerous cases on motor carrier operations.

Areas of analysis include:


Our staff members are available 24 hours a day for quick response to a crash.
