The Serious Nature of Collisions

Large trucks are incredibly dangerous because more damage can be done in wrecks with large trucks. Large trucks contain more moving parts that can wear down. Their loads are large and, if not marked and secured properly, can cause serious injury.

Truck drivers are often on the road for extended periods of time, making them more susceptible to causing accidents that are due to fatigue. Driving throughout the night and into the morning has the potential to lead to accidents that perhaps could have been avoided if the truck driver had not been so exhausted. Trucking companies and their drivers should be aware of these facts and make the safety of others a vital part of their operations. Instead, they often rush to cover up evidence of their negligence as soon as an accident occurs. Many trucking companies have lawyers on call and on scene within hours, and sometimes within minutes, of an accident

We Understand Federal Trucking Regulations and Laws

Trucking companies and their drivers are subject to stringent governmental regulations and it is critical that any attorney handling your claim be familiar with these regulations. Our attorneys are intimately familiar with these regulations and use them to maximize the recovery for our clients.

We are familiar with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and the many requirements for CDL drivers. We use this knowledge to advance our clients' cases by unveiling the many rules that trucking companies and their drivers may be violating, which can result in accidents. These regulations and requirements may include drug testing protocols after wrecks, required equipment and inspections, hours of service, and numerous other requirements that are routinely ignored by trucking companies and their drivers.

It is often necessary to consult with engineers, visual acuity experts, regulatory experts, and law enforcement to determine the true cause of a trucking accident. Many factors can lead to trucking accidents including negligent hiring practices by trucking companies, failure to properly maintain trucks and trailers, inadequate training of drivers, commercial vehicle rules violations, and distracted, tired, and DUI truck drivers.

Our truck accident attorneys are skilled at investigating the wreck and establishing regulation violations or other violations. Our attorneys go even further and secure the driving history, insurance status, and the blood alcohol level of the person who is at fault.
