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 laws. 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 and turn and may lead to a rollover accident.
- Other regulatory violations. From storing hazardous waste to ensuring that 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.
