Truckers can put others on the road at serious risk when they fail to take required rest breaks, or properly log their hours. But sometimes, drivers may drive carelessly because they feel pressured to meet certain deadlines.
Our lawyers protect victims who were severely injured as a result of:
- Truck driver fatigue
- reckless driving and/or speeding
- Failure to obey traffic laws and signs
- Tire blowouts
- Failure to take proper safeguards when backing up or driving within city limits
- Violations of the regulations set by the Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), including failure to take required rest breaks or failure to correctly log their hours
- Distracted driving, like texting while driving
- Mechanical failures

We will determine all parties who may be at fault for the accident by thoroughly investigating your accident claim. This could include the company that failed to enforce certain regulations set by the industry like weight and load restrictions, the company that leased trailers because it may not have received proper maintenance or it could be the actual truck driver.
Working with medical experts where necessary, we seek to get you the highest compensation from the negligent parties and their insurance companies.
