Putting Your Life Back Together
There are so many factors involved in a truck accident, it is important to get on the scene as soon as possible to gather evidence and talk to witnesses. Having successfully handled truck accident cases in the past, we know what to look for when building a case after one of these terrible accidents. Gathering the police report, the DOT inspection report and driving logs from the trucking company, we will look into the following potential truck accident causes:
- Driver fatigue
- Equipment failure
- Drug or alcohol use
- Email or phone use
- Unsecured loads
Trucking companies have much larger insurance policies than individual drivers. These policies will cover all damages, including serious injuries. There are a lot of laws and regulations associated with commercial truck drivers and if any of them have been violated, you may be able to sue for punitive damages as well.
