Truck Regulation Violations

Did You Suffer A Serious Injury?

Crashes involving trucks typically have the most devastating consequences due to the size of the vehicle and the weight of the cargo it's carrying. For that reason, truck drivers and trucking companies are required to adhere to additional guidelines and procedures as compared to everyday automobile drivers. Unfortunately, manufacturers, drivers and trucking companies violate these rules in an attempt to cut costs and maximize profits. Whether these decisions are intentional or inadvertent, it puts the safety and lives of everyone else on the road at risk. Our attorneys are familiar with these regulations and how to investigate and uncover whether they were violated.

Common Truck Accident Questions

  • What are the Most Common Causes of a Truck Accident?

    A: Many factors can cause truck accidents. Poor maintenance, improper loading of the truck, driving under the influence, and other legal violations are just a few of the most common causes of truck accidents.

  • Who Can Be Held Liable?

    A: In many truck accident cases, the trucking company may be held liable for injuries and other damages. Just like any personal injury case, though, truck accident lawsuits and claims involve many factors - so the best way to understand who is legally liable for your damages is by seeking legal guidance.

  • What Should I Look for When Hiring an Attorney?

    A: Experience is key. However, simply looking for an attorney with the most years of legal experience might not be enough. You should also look for counsel who has handled cases similar to yours in the past and will keep your best interests at the forefront of the case.
