At Hill and Bleiberg, LLC, we protect the interests of people whose lives have been altered by serious truck accidents, as well as the families of those involved in fatal accidents.
Trucking is a highly regulated industry. Truckers are required by law to keep logs of driving time, maintenance and rest periods. The operation of interstate tractor-trailers is governed by federal and state law. Despite the rules covering the trucking industry, serious accidents happen constantly, usually causing serious injuries or death.
These accidents are caused by a variety of factors, including:
- Speeding trucks
- Poor truck maintenance
- Equipment failure
- Inattentive truck drivers
- Failure to check blind spots
Our lawyers have recovered record jury verdicts and settlements because of our deep knowledge and understanding of the trucking industry and the nuances of the transportation business.
Major trucking companies have investigative teams that are often on the scene even before law enforcement and emergency medical care units. Its investigation and documentation capabilities are one advantage for the industry. However, a knowledgeable lawyer can help level the playing field when given the opportunity to investigate as soon as possible.
