TRUCK ACCIDENT LITIGATION
Accidents involving semi-trucks are not like
ordinary car accidents. An accident involving a car and an
18-wheeler entails unique issues that can be determinative of
damage awards. If you were involved in a semi-truck accident,
you need an experienced trucking accident lawyer to protect your
rights and advocate for you.
Federal regulations strictly mandate the number of consecutive
hours commercial truck drivers can drive in a day, and require
diligent maintenance of records of hours driven. Commercial
trucking companies also have strict mechanical maintenance
requirements that must be met and documented. There are time
limits for how long trucking companies must keep maintenance and
log books, so it is important to begin an investigation and
secure these documents immediately following an accident.
Our trucking accident attorneys have extensive experience
discovering relevant information from trucking companies. We
also have experience investigating and identifying fraudulent
documentation and indication of activities in violation of
federal commercial trucking regulations, including driving too
many hours, negligent maintenance, and use of drugs or alcohol.
In addition to unique legal issues in trucking accidents, any
accident involving a car and a large truck can result in serious
catastrophic injuries, and
death. Because we have
significant experience representing seriously injured clients
and those who have lost loved ones, we are able to provide the
advice and advocacy you need, regardless of the nature or
severity of your trucking accident injury.
If you are suffering from injuries sustained in an accident with
a commercial truck, or you lost a loved one in such an accident,
do not hesitate to
