Commercial Trucking Accidents
The dangers posed by large commercial vehicles, including semi-trucks and 18-wheelers, are evident by the size and weight of these vehicles. Each year, these massive machines, which can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds, cause severe accidents on roads and highways. Truck accident victims and their families are often devastated. From tremendous emotional damages and physical pain to the extensive financial burdens caused by costly medical bills and lost work wages, damages are routinely severe.
Our legal team conducts extremely thorough investigations to determine and establish the liability of truck drivers and trucking companies. In order to obtain the maximum compensation, we draw from more than 25 years of collective experience and knowledge of the numerous federal trucking regulations to ensure that these cases are resolved as favorably as possible.
Federal Trucking Regulations
As commercial freight-bearing vehicles pose serious threats to public safety, there are hundreds of federal laws, rules, and regulations governing the trucking industry. From hours-of-service regulations that aim to address the dangers of tired drivers to strict drug and alcohol laws and vehicle regulations, these laws are designed to reduce the risks of extremely dangerous truck accidents. With a well-versed knowledge of the various Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations, our firm is able to highlight any violations made by drivers and companies to demonstrate their failures to take reasonable measures for keeping the public safe.
If you or your loved one has been injured in a truck accident, you need legal representation. While all personal injury and wrongful death claims pose a number of difficulties and potential complications, truck accidents are often much more complex. This is because trucking companies frequently utilize their extensive resources and legal teams to contest claims in their attempts to pay injured victims as little as possible. They are in business, of course, to make money, not to pay victims. As such, injured victims require bold and unwavering legal advocates on their side who have no aversion to fighting back against even the most powerful trucking companies.
