Roswell Truck Accident Attorney
Dedicated Representation for Severely Injured Victims in New Mexico
Accidents involving large commercial trucks can cause life-threatening injuries to all those involved. Trucks are often loaded with thousands of pounds of cargo making them difficult to slow down and leaving considerable destruction when they collide with other vehicles. If you were hurt in an accident with a commercial truck, speak with our Roswell truck accident attorney as soon as possible.
Crow Law Firm works on a contingency fee basis, meaning we do not collect payment until we are able to win your case. We do this because we believe our abilities to put together a successful claim for our clients. We have already been able to recover tens of millions of dollars for our clients. You can trust that we will put your interests first when we handle your case and will not rest until you obtain the compensation you need to move on with your life after an accident.
Negligence That Often Leads to Truck Accidents
The key to any injury claim is negligent behavior which leads to an accident. When a commercial truck is involved, we can pursue not only the driver but other parties who may be at fault as well.
We can point out negligence in several ways in a truck accident such as:
- Truck driver fatigue caused by false entries into hour logs
- Transporting unsafe or improperly leaded freight
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, including so-called “pep pills”
- Inadequate or non-existent truck maintenance
- Distracted driving from texting, eating, etc.
Crow Law Firm can investigate every part of the accident, including any faulty truck parts or other factors the truck owner can be held liable for.
FMCSA Regulations for Trucking Companies
Truck accidents affect thousands of Americans every year, but the vast majority of victims in these collisions are the drivers and passengers of smaller vehicles, as opposed to the truck drivers. Because of the inherent hazards of these vehicles, the federal government regulates truck drivers and trucking companies. The agency responsible for these regulations is known as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, or FMCSA.
Guidelines established by the FMCSA for truckers and their employing companies cover a wide variety of areas, including:
- Zero-tolerance policy for drug/alcohol use
- Driver training requirements
- Truck maintenance
- Periodic rest breaks /restrictions for hours on the road
- Loading requirements
- Weather condition restrictions
Were you involved in a truck collision? Have you lost a loved one in a big rig accident? Reach out to our skilled truck accident attorney in Roswell for a free consultation. Truck drivers are mandated by federal law to get regular sleep to reduce the chances of fatigued driving. Our firm can check driver logs and the truck’s black box to determine how long the driver had been on the road without proper rest.
