Truck Driver Negligence
Did You Suffer A Serious Injury In A Truck Accident?
Staying alert while behind the wheel is one of the most important things a driver needs to do in order to keep themselves and everyone they share the road with safe – failure to do so can result in a catastrophic crash and serious injuries, even death. Truck drivers need to take extra care when preparing to get on the road, both because of the sheer size of their vehicles and because of how much time they spend on the road every day. However, far too many trucking companies and drivers attempt to cut corners, push their drivers too far, etc. in an attempt to maximize profits. When these actions result in a negligent driver causing a serious crash, the injured victim or victims deserve the chance to fight for the compensation they need to cover the costs of their medical bills or any other damages they may have incurred.

How Can Driver Negligence Cause An Accident?
In order to prepare your case for trial or negotiations, our lawyers will look into the circumstances that led up to the accident during the discovery process of your lawsuit. Some things we look at include whether the driver was resting for the federally mandated amount of time in between driving shifts, whether they kept their truck well maintained, and more. Other factors we look at include:
- Alcohol or drug use
- If the truck driver was tailgating, following the rules of the road, improperly changing lanes, etc.
- If the truck driver was looking down at their mobile device, phone, etc. at the time of the crash
- Falsified inspection logs, maintenance records, driver’s logs, etc.
- If the truck driver was exhausted from failing to properly take care of themselves or from driving past their federally mandated limits
- If the truck driver was driving recklessly based on the weather or road conditions
