Is Legal Action Right for Me?

Deciding to file a claim or lawsuit can be a difficult decision. Legal matters are typically stressful, not to mention confusing. Every truck accident has unique circumstances that may make legal action invalid or valid. To help you make the right decision for your specific situation, it may be helpful to consult with a skilled lawyer who has experience with such cases. After you have the proper information about your legal rights and options, you can be more prepared to make a decision that you are comfortable with.

The Challenges of Truck Accident Litigation

Cases involving truck accidents are complex considering that trucking companies as well as truck drivers and truck owners have a lot on the line. A truck driver who is determined to have caused a crash may not only lose his or her job, but also be responsible for substantial damages and losses on the part of the personal injury victim or the families of a wrongful death victim.

These consequences can be all the more serious if the truck driver was overworked to the point of fatigue and either fell asleep at the wheel or was negligent due to poor judgment or error. Most of the time, a fatigued trucker is in this state because he or she violated Hours-of-Service (HOS) Regulations enforced by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Truckers may forge logbook records on his or her own or be encouraged to do so by his or her employer in order to get ahead of schedule or meet delivery deadlines.

Building an Effective Case

A lawyer at Alpert Schreyer Poe is dedicated to gathering the proper evidence and presenting the evidence effectively to establish liability and receive fair and just compensation for the injured victim.
