We Know How To Determine Liability in 18-Wheeler Accidents
Identifying the cause of commercial trucking accidents can be a challenge. Evidence from the accident scene can quickly disappear. In many cases, more than one party can actually be held responsible for causing the trucking accident. Our law firm has the skills and legal resources to identify the factors that led to the truck accident such as driver fatigue, maintenance errors, poor road conditions or improper loading techniques.
At The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A., we don’t just protect our clients’ best interests from the comfort of our law office. We conduct thorough investigations reviewing evidence from the accident scene and evaluating any witness statements or police reports.
Our legal team also seeks to track down any records from the truck manufacturer, truck company or shipper, including fuel tickets, dispatch sheets, maintenance records or logbook records. When fault remains unclear, we consult accident scene reconstructionists to help us evaluate every factor possible that could have caused the 18-wheeler accident such as:
- Truck driver negligence — We have the legal resources to prove fault against truck drivers who caused catastrophic and fatal trucking accidents after failing to take proper rest breaks, overloading the commercial trucks or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
- Truck company negligence — Our legal team has a strong background holding truck companies responsible for failing to adequately train new drivers, encouraging truck drivers to speed and make unrealistic deadlines, or failing to ensure commercial vehicles were properly maintained.
We also have extensive experience proving fault against truck manufactures and shippers for any negligent actions that ultimately caused the trucking accident. We evaluate every angle possible to help us prove fault against all liable parties. Our investigative skills are invaluable in helping us obtain a full financial recovery against all at-fault parties.
