Truck Accident Personal Injury Lawyer | Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert, PA

Truck Accident Injury

Vehicle accidents make up the most personal injury cases in the United States. When an accident occurs, it usually is because someone is not following the rules of the road, or not driving as cautiously as they should be. A careless driver may be held responsible financially and for any injuries sustained from the car accident.

There are exceptions in “no-fault” states, where drivers collect from their own insurance companies, except in situations where there are serious injuries. Truck accidents are no exception.

By virtue of their size and speed, trucks invariably cause devastating accidents. If you were on the receiving end of a truck collision, it is likely that you have suffered a catastrophic injury and need a truck accident personal injury lawyer. Rather than struggle to avoid financial peril while fighting to get healthy, let an experienced attorney guide you through the legal process toward the full and fair monetary compensation you are owed.

Serious Truck Accidents

Truck drivers are under an inordinate amount of pressure to deliver their loads fast. If they are able to complete a run before the expected delivery date, they stand to make more money. With this driving force, it is no wonder that some drivers might let certain safe driving techniques fall by the wayside. Accidents can be caused by a number of factors, including:

  • Driver fatigue (this is probably the top safety violation contributing to many catastrophic trucking accidents).
  • Violating hours of service rules (FMCSA Regulations, Part 395)
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Speeding
  • Violation of load limits
  • Unbalanced Loads
  • Failure to maintain proper stopping distance
  • Failure to maintain safety equipment such as lights, brakes or horn

It is important to work with a law firm that has the experience and knowledge necessary to address trucking litigation issues. An experienced trucking accident personal injury lawyer will know that, often, truck driver’s logbooks are falsified.

Sometimes there are two sets of log books – the actual trucking log book and one that might be colloquially referred to like the comic book or joke book.Your lawyer should be familiar with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations and how they impact your potential case and the responsibilities of truck drivers and commercial carriers.Our firm will consider all potentially liable parties. In addition to the driver; the motor carrier or employee leasing company who hired the driver may be liable. Often, the truck driver’s employment file will contain inaccuracies that were not properly vetted by the hiring company, undisclosed criminal records, driving safety violations, etc. In addition, the motor carrier has an obligation to make sure that their trucks are properly maintained and fitted with safety devices.An experienced truck accident personal injury lawyer will be ready to:

  • take the deposition of the motor carrier’s safety director in addition to the truck driver – looking for evidence of fatigue, destruction of evidence, evidence of safety-regulation violations, irregularities in the carrier’s fleet-safety program, and pre/post trip inspections.
  • take the deposition of the motor carrier’s dispatchers, mechanics, accident reconstruction experts, and other corporate representatives.
  • submit many motions to produce the truck’s safety data and the company’s/driver’s historical safety records and delivery schedules.
  • obtain EBRD (Electronic On-Board Recording Device) downloads.
  • examine interstate truck tire tread depths
  • examine interstate truck brake parts
