A Personal Injury Lawyer Who Will Protect Your Rights After A Truck Accident
Have you lost a loved one to a serious tractor-trailer accident? Call my office for a free review of your case. Negligence, either on the part of the truck driver or the trucking company, is often responsible for tractor-trailer accidents, which are substantially more likely to be fatal than other motor vehicle accidents.
I, attorney Alan Rubin, have been arguing for the rights of individuals in Louisville injured by the negligence of others since 1987. I am highly experienced in helping people after all types of vehicle accidents, including truck accidents.
I Understand The Complex Trucking Regulations
Trucking companies have tremendous resources dedicated to defending against a tractor-trailer accident claim. However, there are a great many federal regulations governing the operation of tractor-trailers and truck drivers and trucking companies must comply with many federal and state laws and regulations.
These regulations govern such things as:
- Required regular maintenance and vehicle inspections.
- Proper loading and securing of cargo.
- Semi or tractor-trailer drivers are also limited to the number of hours they may drive in a given period.
- A driver exceeding the maximum number of hours can be overly fatigued and may lack the judgment and ability necessary to operate a large and dangerous vehicle. An experienced tractor-trailer accident attorney will request the driver’s logbook and determine if the log is accurate or has been manipulated.
A sleep-deprived truck driver is a dangerous driver on our highways. You need a lawyer who can dig into whether the logbooks are accurately maintained. Sometimes these logbooks can provide proof that this driver was exceeding the number of hours on the highway. If negligence on the part of the driver or trucking company contributed to your accident case in Kentucky, you will need an attorney to represent you.
