Holding Trucking Companies Accountable
Unlike regular drivers on the road, commercial drivers are under heavy stress to deliver their loads on time, often with immediate turnarounds. This means they are driving long hours and doing so with less sleep. Although trucking companies implement driver safety practices to avoid any dangerous driving conditions, their employees might forego them in order to avoid disciplinary action. There is also a chance that the trucking company has not kept their vehicles in good working order.
Commercial drivers may be affected by:
- Lack of sleep
- Too many hours on the road
- Falsified log sheets
- Improperly maintained vehicles
Trucking accidents happen more often than you may think. At the Law Office of John F. Christl, we have handled many of these cases and stand ready to help you.
Contending with Commercial Insurance Carriers
Because a trucking company’s profitability could be on the line, their insurance carriers are under immense pressure to point the blame your way. It is the job of your Newport Beach truck accident lawyer to build a case that demonstrates their fault and helps you obtain the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled.
You may be entitled to damages such as:
- Lost limb or other body part
- Lost wages from time spent in the hospital
- Medical costs
- Pain and suffering
- Damage to your vehicle
While the trucking company’s insurer may try to paint you as the at-fault driver, the Law Office of John F. Christl can stand with you to protect your interests. Call us today and schedule your free consultation to get started.
