Investigating Trucking Companies
McAllen truck accident lawyers who can determine who was at fault
When you’ve been hurt in a truck accident caused by negligence, you deserve financial compensation. The negligent parties responsible for the accident may deny doing anything wrong and often won’t accept responsibility. Attorney Aizar J. Karam Jr. of Karam Law Firm builds strong cases to hold them accountable.
A truck driver who was speeding, distracted or fatigued may have caused the truck accident that left you injured. Negligence by the trucking company may also have caused the crash. There are different kinds of evidence that can prove trucking company negligence – but it is owned by the trucking companies.
Truck accident lawyers who fight for maximum compensation
That’s why you need an experienced truck accident attorney to fight for you. Our legal team investigates your accident to get the facts and identify negligent parties. This includes taking legal action to gain access to information owned by trucking companies, such as:
- Hours of Service (HOS) Logs: Federal regulations limit the amount of time that truck drivers can spend behind the wheel each day and each week. Drivers also must take regular breaks. This information is usually tracked by electronic logging devices but may also be written records, in some cases.
- Maintenance Records: Trucking companies must keep the trucks in their fleet in good working order. This means they must perform regular maintenance and make needed repairs promptly.
- Employment Records: Before hiring drivers, trucking companies need to conduct background checks to ensure they are qualified and have safe driving records.
- Electronic Control Data: Trucks are equipped with electronic control modules – sometimes known as the truck’s “black box.” These devices record information about speed, braking and other driver behavior.
In addition, our legal team carefully reviews all other documentation related to your accident, such as accident reports and medical records. We identify witnesses and interview them. If needed, we also have a wide network of accident reconstruction experts and other specialists we can consult with to learn more about what happened.
We are determined to help you recover the maximum compensation possible. This includes compensation for all current and future medical expenses to treat your injuries, any lost wages and other damages you suffered, such as pain and suffering.
