A Leader in Truck Crash Cases
Our firm is recognized as a leader and innovator in the field of truck crash cases. We have led the way in proving negligent hiring and retention by truck companies who put unqualified drivers behind the wheel.
We have been at the cutting edge in exposing the role of driver fatigue in causing truck collisions and have pioneered the use of innovative discovery techniques to show that a crash resulting in death or catastrophic injury was caused by a truck driver falling asleep at the wheel.
Unique Knowledge and Experience, Exhaustive Investigation Leading to Exceptional Results
Our intimate understanding of the issues in truck crash litigation and our painstaking investigation of the facts of each case are the keys to our success. Our extensive experience allows us to determine and prove the real cause of a truck collision, whether that cause is driver fatigue, drug or alcohol intoxication, improper loading, poor truck maintenance, faulty equipment, defective truck design, or simple driver error.
Our in-depth knowledge of truck accidents and analytical acumen have repeatedly led to incomparable results. We are skilled at uncovering trucking companies' violations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations that govern the trucking industry and exposing attempts by truck drivers to falsify their log books. We have led the way in showing the effect of cell phone usage and on-board computers in distracting drivers' attention, resulting in crashes.
Truckers and Transportation Companies Are Often Negligent. We Can Prove It.
We know what trucking company records to get, how to get them, and what to do with them to achieve success. Once we accept a truck accident case, we immediately subpoena all pertinent records before they are "lost" or destroyed. Time and again, we have successfully resolved truck accident cases by using drivers' logs, truck maintenance records, drivers' cell phone records, drivers' employment-history records, and other records to show that a truck company violated multiple federal regulations.
Investigating Claims and Using the Right Experts
Our success in handling truck accident claims also results from our strategic use of experts. In addition to working with medical experts and experienced accident reconstructionists, we work with high-level scientific experts. In a recent case involving driver fatigue, we worked with the researcher who discovered rapid eye movement (REM) sleep.
