Trucking accidents often cause catastrophic and/or fatal injuries to other drivers on the roads. Traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury, fractured bones, coma, paralysis, disfigurement, mental anguish, diminished capacity to labor, fatality and other permanent injuries are often left in the wake of these serious collisions on busy roads and highways.
Every trucking company has a duty to employ qualified truck drivers who must follow federal and state rules and regulations. If a truck driver deviates from those rules and regulations, which are commercial drivers’ industry standards, and consequently causes a collision where you are injured, that truck driver as well as his/her employer (i.e. the trucking company) are liable for the resulting damages to you.
We ensure the correct procedures take place in order to preserve necessary evidence as it relates to the truck driver, the truck itself, the employer/trucking company, witnesses, etc. Oftentimes, lack of rest, fatigue, distraction, drugs and/or alcohol, reckless driving and other factors play a role in the causation of the collision. Figuring out and knowing the “why’s” is key in successfully litigating trucking cases.
