The trucking industry is well-known among safety experts for being a dangerous (and dangerously unaccountable) sector of the economy. A global study of truckers worldwide found that 1 in 2 truck drivers had taken drugs or consumed alcohol behind the wheel of their rigs—some of which can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. In the United States, studies revealed the top 10 “associated factors” that contributed to trucking accidents—two of them were the use of prescription and over-the-counter drugs.
Even among sober drivers, a combination of exhaustion and exceeding the speed limit were among the top critical factors that led to a truck accident. Why is trucking so deadly and dangerous for motorists? Because the trucking industry is pushing their drivers to meet deadlines, make their miles, and break federal regulations in order to make ends meet. Lobbyists for the industry are attempting to undo regulations such as mandated rest breaks or electronic log books—things that keep motorists and trucking employees safer.
In our accident investigations, we’ve found that trucking companies are as much to blame for accidents as their drivers are—and our firm has been able to prove it in court.

Q:How is a personal injury claim different from a personal injury lawsuit?
A:If you wish to hold the person responsible for your injuries liable, it is important to know the differences between a claim and a lawsuit. A personal injury claim is the first step, when your attorney files against the parties responsible or liable for the injury. A personal injury lawsuit comes after the claim, taking place in a court of law, if the original claim did not yield the compensation desired by the plaintiffs.
Q:What is negligence?
A:Negligence is one of the key aspects of any personal injury case. Negligence occurs when a person or party does not act with the proper amount of care and caution that a reasonable person would use to prevent harm or injury to another individual, or when the person or party does something harmful that a careful and reasonable person would not have done in a similar situation.
Q:How important is negligence to my case?
A:Negligence is perhaps the most integral factor in an injury claim or lawsuit, and in order to fight for justice against the liable party (also called the defendant), you must first be able to prove their negligence and that it is the direct cause of your injuries.
