Accidents Caused by Truck Driver Error
Did the truck driver work a shift in the warehouse before beginning an over-the-road haul? Did the trucking company perform the background checks on the driver as required by state and federal agencies? Was the truck driver error a result of illegal drug or alcohol use or simple carelessness? Did the driver perform the required pre-trip inspection?
Do you suspect your accident resulted from truck driver error?
After any type of truck accident, before you talk to an insurance company representative, before you talk with the trucking company investigator, before you sign any insurance forms, consult with a lawyer with the necessary experience to identify the cause of the truck accident – it costs you nothing!
At Seaman & Associates, our attorneys have the resources, the experience, and the commitment to identify truck driver error as the cause of an accident. We have a proven record* of successfully recovering damages for those injured, or families of those killed, as a result of such errors. Juries can be quick to find for our client when we present evidence that a driver kept an illegal second log book or was driving under the influence.
When a semi truck collides with a passenger car, the results are devastating for the occupants of the smaller vehicle. For that reason commercial truck drivers are held to a higher standard than private motorists, and commercial trucking companies are subject to strict regulations. Following a trucking accident, state and federal agencies, accident investigators from insurance companies, and law enforcement officials all conduct investigations into the events leading to the crash. Our lawyers carefully examine all reports, and in some cases, hire independent accident reconstructionists to reveal the truth. When we accept a case, our attorneys are prepared to do what it takes to win.
