How Truck Accident Attorneys Can Help You
Trucking companies understand that an accident involving one of its trucks can lead to expensive legal costs. For this reason, if one of its trucks is involved in a crash a company will quickly arrive at the scene and try to build a record to prove its driver was not at fault and was not breaking any rules or regulations. You need someone on your side immediately to look out for the interests of you and your family.
Our attorneys work aggressively with experts to help uncover the facts that lead to you or your family member’s injuries. They work with experts to prove that the driver of the truck was not following the rules of the road. This could include the following:
- Negligent or inadequate training of drivers
- Equipment problems or inadequate equipment
- Failure to comply with laws on maximum hours for drivers
- Failure to keep an up to date and accurate drivers log
- Excess speed
- Heavy loads
Dangerous roadways are often a contributing factor in trucking accidents. Where sharp, unmarked curves, water pooling, potholes, and other hazards can be difficult for any vehicle to negotiate, the risk of accidents increases when a cab pulling one or more trailers encounters these conditions. When the attorneys at Bundza & Rodriguez, P.A. discover road conditions and other factors contributed to an accident, we take all allowable legal action to hold parties responsible for the conditions liable for the accident.
