Challenging Commercial Trucking Companies And Their Insurers After Your Collision
Kentucky and federal trucking regulations are designed to keep our roads safer. When truck drivers and their employers choose to violate these safety rules, their actions can have catastrophic consequences.
If you have been involved in a commercial vehicle accident, Foreman Watson Holtrey, LLP, can help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve. Our personal injury attorneys are fierce litigators. They will fight to secure a settlement or verdict that covers the losses you have sustained, including long-term damage such as disability.
Holding Negligent Commercial Drivers Accountable
When a truck driver’s pay is determined by mileage, the extra hours spent behind the wheel can lead a driver to stay on longer than they should. Driver fatigue can result in slower reaction times.
Our lawyers have years of experience studying truck accident evidence and assembling a solid case of negligence. Our team is current on standards set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) relating to:
- Freight weight
- Truck maintenance
- Hours spent driving without a rest break
- Drug and alcohol use
- Driver training and fitness
- Electronically stored information (ESI)
In some cases, trucking companies and their drivers choose to destroy or falsify records to avoid responsibility. Foreman Watson Holtrey, LLP, knows how to use the law to combat these tactics and obtain justice for our clients. Reach us today to speak to a concerned legal professional.
