About Us

In accidents which involve large trucks, chances of serious injury are much more pronounced than in others. The former even have a higher probability of causing death, considering at least one vehicle (a tractor trailer or semi) weighs upwards of 10,000 pounds. Many state and federal regulations exist which govern trucking companies, and require them to maintain meticulous documentation of safety equipment as well as driver hours.

Accidents involving trucks may be caused by a variety of factors, such as the following.

  • Poor weather
  • Passing unsafely
  • Driver tiredness
  • Poorly loaded trucks
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Improper vehicle maintenance
  • Alcohol or drug use

Truck drivers are required by law to uphold certain procedures which are designed with the objective of boosting their safety, and bringing down the chance of accidents. Directly after an accident occurs, the records of both trucker and driver are generally examined in order to determine who is liable for the accident. In the case of the former, records are legally required to go back through six months prior to the date of the accident, which means that if you have been in a truck crash, it is vital to get in touch with your attorney right away.

Records which may reveal liability include the following.

  • Satellite tracking data
  • Driver communications
  • Driver’s logs
  • Emergency service reports
  • Vehicle inspection reports
  • Black boxes
