Establishing Liability and Cause
Our trucking accident attorneys understand the standard of evidence needed to establish liability in these cases. Trucking accidents are often caused by a direct collision, but may be the result of a rollover or an insecure load. Rest assured that our team is prepared to gather the right evidence for your case, regardless of the circumstances. This means also investigating the driver, the trucking company, manufacturers of the truck, and other parties.
Trucking accident cases require an acute understanding of the trucking industry, including federal and state regulations, and our attorneys have vast experience in this area. We can find out if the truck driver was operating the vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, failing to take the required rest periods, driving aggressively, or driving with an improperly secured load. Our attorneys can also uncover any wrongdoing on the part of the company, such as placing pressure on the driver to disobey regulations in order to meet tight deadlines. Meanwhile, we can examine the vehicle itself to determine if any negligence on the part of the manufacturer may have resulted in a faulty component that contributed to the accident. Once we have identified the responsible parties, we will aggressively pursue the restitution you deserve while you concentrate on healing.
