Millions of Dollars Recovered for Our Clients

Commercial vehicles are a part of our everyday lives. Each time we merge onto the highway, we co-exist with tractor-trailer trucks, big rigs, and other oversize vehicles. These trucks are an essential to our economy, moving goods and other commerce from place to place and making sure our communities have the necessary resources to survive. Unfortunately, these vehicles can also be extremely dangerous.

Truckers spend long hours on the road, often for days at a time, and sometimes even weeks on end. Sometimes they sleep in the cab. Therefore, trucks and their drivers wear out, which increases the chance of devastating accidents on the road. If you or someone you love sustained injury as the result of a truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation. A trucking injury settlement will help you pay for medical bills, compensate for lost wages, and give your family recompense for pain and suffering.

Regulations for Truck Drivers

Truck drivers and the companies who employ them are required to follow detailed regulations set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). This is a federal government agency that sets forth proper guidelines for truck weight, hours on the road allowed, maintenance schedules, and other appropriate safety measures. If a driver or their employer violates any of these rules, there can be severe consequences both in the employer’s pockets and on the road. If you’re injured as a result of a driver’s or company’s negligence, the trucking accident lawyers at Michael J. Redenburg, Esq. PC will fight for you to hold them accountable.

Commercial vehicles can create hazards for other drivers on the roadway. Trucks travel thousands of miles and spend many hours on the road for days at a time, which requires stringent maintenance to avoid malfunctioning. Truck drivers also log long hours, spending days or weeks at a time behind the wheel with incomplete rest and hard schedules to meet. These truckers must also follow rules set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA).

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

When we take on a truck accident case, we work tirelessly to find the source of the negligence and preserve evidence for court. In our years of practicing truck accident law, we’ve identified several common causes for severe and fatal truck accidents:

  • Commercial rules violations. The FMSCA protects the public from trucking incidents by setting regulations for maintenance and logged hours. When a trucking company or its employees violate these standards, disaster can result.
  • Negligent hiring. Employers of truck drivers have an obligation to thoroughly vet and investigate every employee, from his or her driving history to any record of substance abuse. When a company fails to investigate its drivers, it may be legally liable when a driver’s negligent actions lead to injury.
  • Inadequate truck maintenance. Commercial drivers and their employees have strict legal responsibilities when it comes to maintaining and inspecting vehicles. Failure to adhere to these responsibilities is considered negligence.
  • Lack of training. Truck companies are responsible for a driver’s training and his or her behavior on the road. Companies must adequately train and inform employees of regulations.
  • Distracted, tired, or impaired drivers. Truck drivers can cause serious accidents when they spend too many hours on the road, drive with distractions, or under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
