- Ralph Scoccimaro on Trucking Lawyers
Our lawyers have long term working relations with many doctors, medical specialists and other professionals. This sometimes aids in coordinating your payment source to your medical specialist to facilitate treatment for serious or catastrophic injury, such as back injury, neck injury, or brain injury. These professionals also may be called to testify on our clients’ behalf.
We do not settle cases quickly; we work closely with each client to make sure that we build a solid case for trial. Our auto accident attorneys are experienced, aggressive trial lawyers. However, if our extensive trial preparations convince our opponents to settle out of court for a sufficient sum, we are always willing to spare our clients the stress of a trial.
Trucking Regulations and How They Are Violated
Truck accident lawyers do much more than wrangle with insurance companies. Finding who is at fault for an accident involving any commercial vehicle necessitates intimate knowledge of the many motor carrier safety regulations. Therefore, there are many issues involved in truck accident cases that are not found in other auto accident lawsuits. If a semi-truck driver or trucking company is found to be in violation of trucking regulations (as often many are), a case can change dramatically in favor of our client.
There are many motor carrier safety regulations that semi-truck drivers and the companies that employ them regularly break, thus endangering the lives of everyone else on the road. Just a few are:
Trucker fatigue: Many truckers go beyond their permitted service hours and do not get enough rest in order to race their goods to their destinations. Often the trucking companies are complicit, by forcing them to make unreasonable quotas.
Sleep apnea: Related to trucker fatigue, sleep apnea is a huge problem in trucking. Often truckers say that they are sleeping when they are actually riding in the back of a tractor trailer while someone else drives. As the 18-wheeler bounces down the road, the driver is not really getting sufficient rest, causing a condition called sleep apnea.
Negligent hiring and supervision: Sometimes it is not only the negligent act of the driver that causes a wreck, but the negligence of the trucking company for turning a blind eye to infractions or encouraging a driver to drive more miles than he or she should. Trucking companies have no excuse; they use a system called Qualcomm that tracks the hours and speed traveled by every truck.
For those needing more information on the legal issues involved in truck accidents, our lawyers have provided a Truck Accidents Information Center.
You Must Act Quickly
As with any personal injury case, it is very important to contact an attorney soon after a truck accident. The lawyers of our firm immediately begin work protecting important documents and “black box” information that trucking companies can destroy six months after the crash. If possible, we also need to have our accident reconstruction experts to examine the site of the crash.
