Tractor-Trailer Accident Attorney
We will carefully review the trucking company’s policies and protocols for driver performance and safety. Deviations from these standards are often major contributing factors in these senseless and often tragic accidents. We also look at state and federal guidelines for time on the road and documented sleep protocols. We are well-versed in applicable interstate carrier laws and guidelines. It is not uncommon for drivers and their companies to cut corners in their efforts to make up for lost time and maximize their employer’s profits.
Our experts will look at the maintenance records for the given truck and its recent driving history. We will also investigate licensing issues, drug and alcohol reports, and other applicable driver information.
These accidents often occur on large highways and interstates, creating complex forensic situations. Our lawyers network with highly skilled reconstruction experts, in evaluating the semi-truck accident and maximizing your recovery. We will find the answers for you, showing exactly what occurred and if it could have been prevented.
