Did The Trucking Company Fail To Follow Regulations?
Despite federal regulations designed to maintain the safety of trucks and other commercial vehicles, a study published by the U.S. Department of Transportation shows that 10 percent of large truck accidents are the result of vehicle factors and failures such as:
- Failure to regularly inspect, repair and maintain all vehicles and equipment
- Defective brakes, tires and wheels
- Failure to properly secure cargo, causing cargo to shift
- Exceeding the truck’s weight limit
In addition, exceeding driver hour limits can cause driver fatigue, which can lead to accidents. Working with accident reconstruction experts when appropriate, we investigate the cause of truck accidents in order to determine liability.
You have a right to seek compensation for your losses, including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. A group of investigators, insurance adjusters and attorneys will represent the trucking company and its insurance carrier. If you do not have legal representation, no one will be protecting your interests.
