Notifying All Potentially Negligent Parties
For a number of reasons, trucking accidents tend to be more complex than wrecks that involve only passenger vehicles. It is important that you have a lawyer with the experience and resources to investigate a truck accident thoroughly in order to build the strongest possible case on your behalf.
At the firm, we enlist the help of experts and other professionals in the field to determine the exact cause of the accident and who may be liable. Depending on the facts of the case, the parties potentially liable for a truck accident include:
- The truck driver
- The party that owns the truck or trailer
- The party responsible for screening the truck driver’s background
- The party that loaded the truck’s cargo
- The manufacturer of the truck, the trailer or other defective parts that may have contributed to the crash
Investigating Possible Hours-Of-Service Violations
Federal hours-of-service regulations exist to prevent truck driver fatigue, which has been a factor in extremely serious accidents in recent years. Our attorneys can investigate whether a truck driver has violated federal rules by driving for too long or failing to accurately log driving hours.
Unfortunately, these kinds of violations can lead to devastating consequences in semi-truck and 18-wheeler accidents, including cases of wrongful death.
No Attorney Fee Unless We Recover Compensation For You
The attorneys of Johnson Hobbs Squires LLP handle personal injury and wrongful death cases on contingency. That means you do not pay an attorney fee unless we recover compensation on your behalf.
