Our familiarity with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations enables us to focus our investigation of trucking and other commercial vehicle accidents on the most important issues of fact that bear upon the defendant’s liability. These include the inspection and maintenance of the truck itself, the hours driven by the trucker in that 24-hour period and in that week, and the trucking company’s record of compliance with federal safety regulations.
Other important considerations in the investigation of the accident include the weather, visibility, and traffic conditions; the presence or absence of all required hazard lights and reflectors; and the experience of the driver with the load and highway conditions that existed at the time of the collision.
Because of the sometimes complicated corporate and contractual relationships between shippers, freight companies, equipment owners, and drivers, we carefully analyze all of the documentation describing the role of each party involved in the driver’s run. In some cases, we are able to identify multiple defendants whose insurers can be held financially responsible for your injuries.
Our lawyers represent personal injury and wrongful death plaintiffs in commercial vehicle accident cases with such characteristics as the following:
- Jackknife or fishtail accidents
- Overweight or oversized loads
- Driver fatigue
- Negligent hiring or training of the driver
- Underride accidents
- Brake failure or defective tire cases
- Flammable or hazardous materials accidents
In any serious accident involving a semi tractor trailer combination or heavy construction equipment hauler, we devote considerable attention to the proof and presentation of the victim’s injuries and needs for future treatment and rehabilitation. In fatal accident cases, we concentrate on giving the jury a clear understanding of what the loss of the victim means to your family.
