Trucking Company Negligence Lawyers in North Carolina
Commercial trucking companies have a responsibility to maintain their trucks, including routine maintenance and major repairs. They must also not overload their trucks and make sure they hire licensed, safe truck drivers. The trucking industry is highly regulated. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration spells out how long truckers can stay behind the wheel as well as weight limits and other regulations. If they violate FMCSA rules or break state or federal laws and an accident happens, the company may be liable for injuries and losses.
At the Law Offices of Richard Flexner, we have been handling serious truck accidents and investigating trucking companies for more than 35 years. We know how to find out what really happened during your trucking accident. We know how to uncover the truth. Your case matters here.
Some common examples of trucking companies being negligent include:
- Overloaded trucks
- Poorly maintained trucks
- Incomplete safety records
- Forcing drivers to work longer hours, resulting in accidents involving fatigued truckers
- Concealing evidence of trucker alcoholism or substance abuse problems
- Improperly documented vehicle maintenance record
- Lack of truck black box or GPS Locator on the truck, which could assist in determining the speed of the truck at time of collision, and how long the vehicle was on the road.
