Truck drivers are required to follow regulations that include federal motor carrier safety regulations; hazardous materials regulations; hours-of-service regulations; state safety, licensing and insurance requirements; and employee hiring, supervision and truck maintenance requirements. If any of those rules are violated, the trucking company or the truck driver may be liable for your injuries.
Get the help you need to fully investigate your claim and receive the results that you are owed.
Auto Accidents are devastating, but truck accidents can be especially perilous due to a truck’s large size and enormous weight. Accidents involving semitrucks and other commercial motor carriers tend to be high-impact and high-injury. If you have been injured in a truck accident, it is possible that a truck driver or trucking company can be held responsible. In some situations, a truck accident may be caused by lacking maintenance or a defective part. In those circumstances, a maintenance worker or auto part manufacturer may be held responsible.
With so many parties potentially involved, you need an attorney who is able to investigate all of the possible components of your case. The truck-accident claim process may involve investigation of prior incidents involving the trucking company or driver, review of maintenance log books, scrutiny of truck company hiring and training practices, interviews of witnesses, examination of physical evidence and vehicle damage, and reconstruction of the accident by experts. I am experienced in complex cases, and I will fully investigate your claim to achieve the results that you are owed.
It is important to act quickly if you have been injured in a truck accident, because, often, an insurance company for the other driver will immediately be trying to prove that you were at fault. You will want an attorney who is experienced in litigation and truck accident claims to represent your rights in the face of the truck driver’s insurance legal team. I am a veteran truck-accident lawyer and litigator in Portland, who will not be intimidated by insurance carrier’s lawyers or the investigation processes necessary to maximize your results.
