Holding Truck Companies and Truck Drivers Responsible
Any violation of a federal regulation or an industry standard is a choice. It is a choice to overload a truck, hire unqualified drivers, cut corners, and focus on profits more than safety. When trucking companies make such decisions, they must be held accountable for the damage they cause. Likewise, truck drivers have a duty to drive safely, load cargo safely and perform their professional duties in a responsible manner.
When truck companies and truck drivers are negligent, they must be held accountable for the injuries they cause to other drivers and pedestrians. Our attorneys are committed to obtaining maximum compensation on behalf of accident victims hurt by the negligence and wrongdoing of others. If you or a family member has been injured in a truck accident caused by the overloading of a truck, or any other type of negligence, we are ready to put our experience and resources to work for you.
