Establishing Responsibility For Truck Collisions | Pursuing Recovery Compensation

Truck companies and truck drivers bear responsibility for negligence in collisions with other motor vehicles and actions that cause other drivers on the road to take evasive actions to avoid collisions. Commercial trucks are dangerous. Defective truck parts, a blown tire, an improperly secured cargo load or a distracted driver can cause serious and sometimes fatal injuries to other drivers on the road.

At The West Law Firm, we independently investigate accident scenes, review police reports and insurance policies, and communicate with insurance companies and all other parties involved. We collaborate with experts in a variety of fields to establish fault and responsibility comprehensively in cases involving:

  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Distracted truck driving
  • Truck driver inexperience, lack of training and negligent hiring
  • Improper inspection, repair and maintenance
  • Falsified logbooks
  • Improper preservation of records at loading docks, truck yards, warehouses and maintenance facilities
  • Improperly secured or flagged cargo loads
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Lack of required safety equipment
  • Drunk drivers and drivers under the influence of banned substances
  • Other noncompliant practices and safety violations

Trucking companies, truck drivers and others in the shipping industry are responsible for following federal safety guidelines that are very clearly defined by the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Unfortunately, many operators are more than willing to cut corners to save time and increase profits at the expense of safety. Drivers exceed speed limits, overload trucks, drive for more hours than regulations allow and overlook many other safety regulations just to make more money.
