When A Trucking Company May Be Liable
Commercial trucking is a heavily regulated industry for very important reasons. Any company that puts tractor-trailer rigs and other vehicles weighing many tons on our roadways has a critical obligation to put safety first. However, many fall short on this duty by putting money and profits over safety, which puts ordinary drivers at great risk.
If you have been injured or tragically lost a family member in a North Carolina car-truck collision, contact a law firm that will go the distance in investigating what happened and battling resourcefully for all the compensation you deserve.
Exposing Trucking Safety Violations And Holding Corporations Accountable
Trucking accident litigation is a familiar territory for attorney John M. McCabe and our dedicated personal injury team. Since 1994, we have recovered millions for victims and surviving family members after accidents caused by negligence such as:
- Violations of the trucking regulations that govern maximum driving and mandatory rest breaks, leading to crashes caused by driver fatigue
- Overloading of trucks in violation of specific weight limits, resulting in brake failures, tire blowouts, loss of control, semi rollovers and other catastrophic outcomes
- Failures to perform required licensing and background checks on drivers and provide adequate training before putting them on the road
- Inadequate truck inspections, maintenance or repair
We recognize the tremendous economic and competitive pressures on trucking companies, especially in an adverse financial climate, but we also know the real human costs of cutting corners on safety. An experienced Raleigh-Durham trucking company negligence attorney at our firm can bring many years of relevant case experience and insight to your cause, targeting fair compensation to help you recover as fully as possible and move forward in life.
