Representing Victims of Truck Accidents in New London and Across Connecticut
Trucking is a strictly regulated industry with multiple laws and rules governing the conduct of drivers and trucking companies. Because of the pressures that drivers and trucking companies face, however, they sometimes disregard these laws to maximize efficiency and profits.
In almost every trucking accident, the driver or the trucking company has violated a local law or federal regulation. Our attorneys explore the evidence surrounding the accident to uncover any violations that might have contributed to it. Some of the most common include:
- Logbook violations: Drivers are required to maintain accurate, up-to-date logs of their mileage, time behind the wheel, cargo and other important details. We have the experience to comb through driver logs for discrepancies.
- Excessive speed for conditions: Many truck operators drive far too fast for road conditions because they are under pressure to cover territory quickly.
- Driving too many hours with inadequate sleep: Driver fatigue and exhaustion cause countless trucking accidents. Establishing that a driver was behind the wheel longer than the federally mandated maximum can help prove liability.
- Insufficient driver training or qualifications: In some cases, truck drivers falsify their credentials and trucking companies do not check drivers' backgrounds sufficiently.
When drivers and trucking companies cut corners and break the law to increase their profit margins, it puts everyone else at risk. We will uncover all violations to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
