The trucking industry is highly regulated. Both drivers and employers are required to keep detailed records of information including driver history and qualifications, truck maintenance, hours worked, and miles that were driven. After an accident occurs, our attorneys know exactly where to look for evidence of driver or company negligence which can help your case.
Key factors in a truck accident investigation include:
A common cause of accidents involving commercial vehicle occurs when a driver becomes too tired or sleepy to properly operate their vehicle. Drivers are often given a heavy workload and pushed to meet strict deadlines. Under these circumstances, a driver may take dangerous and often negligent actions in order to meet demand. The FMCSA has taken actions to prevent this type of behavior by restricting a number of hours a truck driver can work. While not every accident will involve driver fatigue, an investigation into the driver, logbooks, and computer data may help to show if a driver violated an hours-of-service (HOS) regulation.
