Large Truck Accident Injuries

If you’ve witnessed or been involved in an accident involving a large truck, you know how terrifying and damaging it can be. Whether the truck driver caused the accident or not, large truck accidents can lead to expensive vehicle repairs, huge medical bills or even the loss of life. If you’ve been involved in a large truck accident and you were not a fault, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries, vehicle repair expenses and more.

Driver Fatigue and Equipment Failure

Federal laws require truck drivers to take a specified amount of time each day to rest. By ignoring these laws and driving through fatigue, truck drivers put all other surrounding vehicles at risk. Truck drivers must keep a log of their driving activities and any equipment inspections, so if you’ve been injured in a large truck accident, our team will acquire those logs to prove any failure to comply with federal laws.

In the case that the documentation shows inappropriate conduct of the driver, it is much easier to prove that the accident was not your fault.

Getting the Proper Documentation Will Help Improve Your Case

Federal law only requires trucking companies to retain driver records for 6 months, obtaining the files to strengthen your case is a time-sensitive matter. Therefore it is vital to get in touch with an attorney as soon as possible after a large truck accident.
