Exposing Truck Driver Negligence
Trucking companies train truck drivers in methods for avoiding blame. Our law office gathers facts to determine who is at fault and uses evidence of truck driver negligence to fight for fair compensation. We consult accident investigators who measure skid marks, analyze the data from a truck’s on-board black box recorder, and reconstruct the accident. We also subpoena a truck driver’s log to see if he or she exceeded the number of drive-time allowable hours while taking further investigative steps to determine if driver fatigue or excessive speeding was involved in the truck crash.
Causes of Trucking Accidents
Our personal injury attorneys represent clients injured in truck accidents involving issues such as:
- Driver fatigue / drivers falling asleep at the wheel
- Inattentive driving
- Excessive speeding
- Wide angled turns
- Lane drift
- Absence of rear guard to prevent under-riding
- Load shift and improperly secured loads
- Absence of reflective markings
- Failure to pull off onto shoulder correctly
- Tire blowout
- Drunk driving / driving under the influence
- Trucks from Mexico that don’t meet federal highway standards
Determining the Financial Impact of a Trucking Accident
Given the size and weight of tractor trailers and semi trucks, accidents involving them usually result in catastrophic injuries and fatalities. We consult with life care planners, vocational rehabilitation specialists, medical professionals and economists to determine the true economic cost of a catastrophic injury.
Working with economists and life care planners, we present cost estimates for serious injuries, such as head trauma, spinal cord injuries, amputations, serious burns, and head and neck injuries. Our truck accident attorneys consider costs associated with surgery, physical therapy, medical equipment, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
