These injuries are often permanent, so it is integral that you get the help of an experienced lawyer to fight for justice on your behalf.

Truck Drivers & Companies Hold High Responsibility

In fact, negligent drivers often make mistakes because of very universal instances of carelessness on the road, as well as behavior more specific to their occupation. Different from a regular car accident, trucking companies and truck drivers must adhere to laws known as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations in addition to ordinary traffic laws.

These federal laws for trucking companies detail everything from the kind of training truck drivers must receive to how long drivers are allowed to stay behind the wheel before they are required to take an eight-hour break. Some forms of their negligence may include:

  • Improper maintenance
  • Failure to update and maintain driver log books

  • Fatigued and overworked drivers

  • Drugged or drunk drivers
