Truckers drive hundreds of thousands of miles each year and most are compensated on the amount of goods moved from one destination to another. There are laws concerning how many hours per day a driver is allowed to work, as well as strict laws on DUI for commercial drivers. There are many federal laws and regulations on the care and maintenance of these 10,000+ pound vehicles due to the potential for damage caused by driver error or equipment failure. One of the most common causes for truck accidents is faulty tires. When claiming damages for truck accident injuries, it is necessary to prove fault. While it might seem obvious that the truck caused the damage, the opposing side will attempt to avoid responsibility and can make the process very difficult. Our legal team is well equipped to deal with issues of equipment failure, driver fatigue, failure to observe traffic conditions such as high winds and icy roads, improperly balanced loads, worn out tires and distracted driving.
