Holding Truck Carriers Responsible After Injury

When failing to follow standard safety procedures results in a devastating truck accident, those responsible can be held legally responsible. Our truck accident lawyers have over 80 years of combined experience in maximizing compensation for the injured.

In the aftermath of an accident, there usually is a lot of finger-pointing. The driver will attempt to blame anyone else. The carrier may deny legal liability. At Holmes & Wiseley, P.C., we have seen it all, and we know how to fight back and pursue compensation from every source.

Common Actions That Lead To Truck Carrier Fault

In our decades of representing the injured we have seen all types of truck accidents. We have won compensation for our clients in accidents involving:

  • Violating hours-of-service. Under federal law, truck drivers are prevented from driving for too long without a break. Failing to follow these regulations can lead to drowsy driving and result in an accident.
  • Unsafe cargo/overloading. This could include unevenly distributing weight, failing to latch down items or overloading a truck past weight limits. Doing so can affect a truck's ability to stop, turn and may lead to a rollover accident.
  • Other regulatory violations. From storing hazardous waste to ensuring the undercarriage of a truck meets safety regulations, you can rely on Holmes & Wiseley, P.C., to fully investigate the cause of your accident and explore compliance with federal and state regulations.
