Truck Driver Negligence
Investigating Driver Negligence
Due to the dangerous nature of their job, numerous state and federal regulations exist to maintain safety on the road but sometimes truck drivers don’t follow these rules and that can have serious consequences.
In the past, we’ve found evidence suggesting that drivers were forced to perform under tight deadlines with little break. As a result, some drivers may attempt to cut corners by speeding or driving without sufficient sleep. We believe it is never appropriate to put quotas above public safety, and we work tirelessly to fight for this ideal.
Truck Driver Negligence Personal Injury Claims
Chances are, the truck driver involved in an accident has a team of lawyers working on their behalf. That’s why our thorough investigations aim to build a solid foundation of evidence, before the case is brought to a trial or jury.
Liability is the most important thing in these cases and understanding where and for what reason things went wrong is essential to the investigation. Our legal team makes sure to completely review every piece of information possible in order to uncover the truth. We seek out:
- Fuel tickets
- Cargo information
- Dispatch sheets
- Driver logs
Through this information, we can begin to paint a clearer picture of the determining factors in an accident claim. We will work to find out if any of these factors played a part in the accident:
- Driving under the influence (drugs or alcohol)
- Traffic violations, including speeding
- Reckless or careless driving, including texting/calling while driving
- Driving without proper rest
- Failure to secure sargo
