Pursuing Accountability in a Trucking Company Lawsuit

State and federal regulations attempt to influence the safe operation of commercial vehicles and minimize the incidence of catastrophic semi truck crashes by requiring appropriate medical certification, licensing, testing, training, and other documentation of commercial truck drivers. When a business negligently hires a truck driver who has not met such requirements, or fails to verify a driver's qualifications, the business is equally responsible for placing a potentially dangerous commercial driver behind the wheel of an 18-wheeler.

At Comerford & Britt, we hold trucking companies accountable for their negligent practices such as:

  • Negligent hiring: Hiring drivers with poor driving records, history of incomplete or inaccurate log books, drug or alcohol abuse problems, criminal convictions, or any other issues that would raise concerns for most reasonable employers
  • Other truck company negligence: Failing to conduct regular alcohol and drug testing, properly maintain vehicles, review or maintain driver logs or inspection reports, provide necessary training, impose sanctions on drivers for committing safety violations or log book violations

Our law firm focuses on providing diligent, skilled representation to the victims of catastrophic truck accidents and the families of fatal truck accident victims. This allows our attorneys to provide each client with the attentive, personal guidance he or she deserves while devoting the resources necessary to fully develop the case. The results in cases involving permanent disability or wrongful death are a testament to our dedication and our determination.

You are entitled to injury compensation for your losses. Our truck accident lawyers can apply our experience, knowledge of the law and perseverance to your situation and fight relentlessly to ensure your family is not exposed to the financial consequences of a serious brain injury, spinal cord injury or other disability. Likewise, if a family member has died in a fatal tractor trailer rollover or 18-wheeler crash, we can apply the same experience, compassion, and diligence to recovering for your family's loss.
