Hour Log Violation Related Accident Attorney

Accidents Involving Driving Log Violations
Continuous Hours on the Road | Excessive Time Without Sufficient Breaks

Because over-the-road truckers get paid for the delivery of a load, not by the hour, many drivers will attempt to maximize their income by staying on the road for hours at a time or taking only minimal breaks over a long period of time. Federal trucking regulations prohibit this, but many truckers and trucking companies ignore these requirements, falsifying log books to comply with regulations. Unfortunately, drivers who become fatigued often lose their ability to properly respond to unexpected conditions. The results can be devastating, and deadly.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a truck accident and you believe that trucker violated hour regulations, you want an experienced, knowledgeable and aggressive lawyer to protect your rights.

Truck Accidents Involving Driving-Hour Log Violations

When you hire us to help you pursue full and fair compensation for injuries suffered in a truck accident, one of our first actions will be to obtain all driving logs from the trucker and the trucking company. Because we know that these documents can be falsified, we will also request documentation to support the trucker’s driving record, including hotel or motel receipts, gas or meal receipts and credit card statements. We will carefully match up the times the driver claimed to be at specific locations with documentation that supports or refutes those claims.

We handle truck accident injury claims involving all types of injuries, including serious and catastrophic loss, as well as accidental or wrongful death lawsuits. We will help you seek monetary damages for all your losses, from lost income or wages to physical pain and suffering, from medical expenses to loss of companionship or consortium.
