Every year on our roads and highways, car crashes and trucking accidents claim countless lives and cause irreparable injuries. Too many times, these accidents are the result of one driver’s carelessness or recklessness, including speeding, running red lights, driving drunk, texting or driving with poorly maintained equipment. Sadly, in many cases, it doesn’t matter if you are a safe driver as it is impossible to anticipate the negligent acts of others behind the wheel.

Trucking accidents involving over-the-road haulers and tractor-trailers are likely to result in serious injuries. Unfortunately, despite these dangers, trucking companies routinely overload their vehicles and fail to maintain them properly. In addition, truck drivers have been known to overextend their time and service requirements, often leading to driver fatigue.
Fortunately, however, trucking companies are required under the law to keep detailed truck logs and driver logs. In some cases, a thorough examination of these logs reveals misconduct and noncompliance, and can help to establish liability in motor vehicle and trucking accident cases.
