Protecting Victims of Trucking Company Negligence

Under federal trucking regulations, trucking companies must perform routine maintenance checks and complete maintenance logs. They must also monitor the hours that a driver spends on the road and in regularly scheduled breaks. Too frequently, in their drive to maximize profits, trucking companies neglect to keep logs current, ensure that proper maintenance is done or make certain that drivers are not risking fatigue or inattentiveness from too many hours on the road.

Additionally, trucking companies must take reasonable care when hiring, training or supervising their employees to make certain that the drivers they employ have the proper skills, and that they are not engaging in activities that pose risks to other motorists.

We handle all types of claims involving trucking company negligence. When you hire us to help you pursue damages, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts of your case, traveling to the scene of the accident if necessary. We will obtain all necessary documentation to establish whether trucking company officials neglected their duties, and will work with expert witnesses if necessary to put together the most compelling case for your full financial recovery.
