Holding Commercial Trucking Companies to Account for Injuries and Loss of Life
Commercial trucking companies are required under federal law to comply with a strict set of safety regulations governing everything from vehicle maintenance to truck driver training. When trucking companies fail to do so, they may be held liable to pay for the accidental injuries and wrongful deaths that result.
In some cases, trucking companies may bear responsibility for negligent hiring practices and mistakes on the part of the truck drivers they employ. An experienced attorney at Stevenson & Murray can help you evaluate all your options for seeking maximum recovery after a serious trucking accident caused by an overworked truck driver suffering fatigue due to too many hours behind the wheel or who was speeding to meet a deadline.
To discuss your rights and legal options with a leading personal injury trial attorney with substantial experience and a proven record of success in truck accidents and commercial trucking company negligence cases, please contact our offices in Houston, Texas, today. Your consultation and case evaluation will be free.
Immediate Investigation May Be Required to Prove Trucking Company Negligence
Many commercial trucking companies employ teams of attorneys and investigators with one purpose: to respond immediately to any serious or fatal accident involving one of the company’s vehicles. Their purpose is to take control of the scene and to quickly take legal steps to limit the trucking company’s exposure in any resulting insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit.
The insurance company will almost certainly send its own team of accident investigators to the scene. Their goal is also to limit the ability of victims of trucking company negligence to recover maximum financial compensation.
