Negligent Truck Drivers Can Be Held Liable
Our lawyer, William Raikes, has more than 30 years of experience helping victims of trucking accidents explore their legal options for recovery. We understand the challenges you face after suffering an injury. We will protect your rights and work hard to hold the truck driver and truck company accountable for their negligence.
How can we hold the truck driver and company liable for the accident? We will have to prove negligence contributed to the accident. Common types of negligence that we look for include:
- Unsafe truck driving behaviors like speeding, failure to signal or fatigued driving
- Failure to follow truck driver safety measures like following hours of service rules or cellphone use while driving
- Failure to properly maintain the vehicle like maintaining the brakes or other safety features
- Improper loading of vehicle
We will investigate to see what caused the crash, and if the truck driver or company contributed to the cause of the accident. Filing a claim against a trucking company requires an experienced lawyer who not only knows the safety standards truckers are required to follow but also knows how to fight for your best interests.
