Semi-trucks can weigh tens of thousands of pounds and injuries resulting from accidents with semi-trucks are often devastating. Because of the devastating results from truck driver negligence, interstate trucking companies are required by federal law to keep driver’s logs, maintenance records, and other data that can provide insight into the cause of a crash.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a collision involving a trucking company, it is important to contact an experienced attorney to quickly investigate the case and preserve the evidence necessary to establish the liability of the negligent trucking company and driver. Some of the common causes of trucking accidents include:
- Driver fatigue
- Aggressive driving by the truck driver
- Truck equipment failure due to improper maintenance
- Overloading or improperly loading of the trailer
- Unsafe passing
- Truck speeding
- Operating a truck in poor weather conditions
Many trucking accidents are caused by deliberate violations of trucking safety regulations, such as the requirement for drivers to take legally required breaks to prevent driver fatigue. Trucking companies knowingly violate these regulations in their quest to increase profit.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a semi-truck, you need an attorney who knows the rules and how the game is played. The lawyers at Dowding, Dowding, Dowding and Urbom offer a free and fair consultation. Prompt investigation is essential in truck accidents, before evidence such as driver log books and maintenance records disappear.
