Establishing Trucking Company Negligence

The federal government heavily regulates the trucking industry. Evidence that a trucking company violated federal safety regulations can prove negligence in a personal injury or wrongful death case.

When investigating your truck accident case, our lawyers will leave no stone unturned and allow no responsible party to escape legal liability. Common causes of tractor-trailer wrecks include:

  • Driver fatigue: One of the leading causes of truck accidents is driver fatigue. While federal law requires drivers to take rest breaks to prevent accidents caused by fatigue, violations are common. Proving that the driver violated hours-of-service laws can make your case much stronger.
  • Negligent hiring: An investigation of the truck driver's record can uncover past violations, tickets and accidents. Trucking companies are responsible if they hired an unsafe driver.
  • Defective equipment: Trucking companies are required to keep truck maintenance records to ensure safety equipment is in working order.
  • Improperly loaded semi trucks: Overweight trucks take longer to stop and are harder to control. Unsecured loads can cause items to fly off the trailer and injure other motorists.
  • Driver error: Driving in unsafe conditions, speeding, unsafe passing, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol can turn a tractor-trailer into a dangerous missile.

When millions of dollars may be at stake in the outcome of your case, it's important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Otherwise, the evidence you need to prove your case could be lost or destroyed.
