Truck Accident Cases

Most truck accidents involve a certain level of negligence on the part of the driver, employer, or owner.  Factors that often lead to truck accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Driver usage of prescription and over-the-counter drugs to remain awake
  • Driving over the speed limit
  • Faulty brakes
  • Traffic Congestion
  • Driver unfamiliarity with local roads
  • Poor maintenance

Truck Accident Claims

Truck accident litigation is complicated and requires the expertise of one of our attorneys because:

  • Our lawyers are deeply familiar with all state and federal motor carrier safety regulations. Federal law requires all truck drivers receive basic training and limit their consecutive hours driving.  Unfortunately, due to industry demand, many drivers and employers cut corners and fail to follow all laws.  An attorney can review truck logbooks, black boxes, compliance with licensing and certification regulations, and maintenance records for a particular vehicle.
  • A truck accident attorney can determine whether the truck driver or his employer can be held liable for the driver’s negligence.
  • Determining the jurisdiction for a lawsuit can be especially difficult with out-of-state trucking companies.
