When an 18-Wheeler accident is involved, investigating and proving the liability requires an entirely different process than is involved in an average car accident. The stakes are far higher and there are numerous complex issues that need to be considered and investigated.

We Know The Trucking Rules And Regulations

Numerous laws govern all drivers and automobiles, but there are additional rules and complex regulations that govern commercial truckers and trucking companies. That is why it is critical to enlist an experienced truck accident attorney to investigate your accident right away to determine if violations of any of these rules led to your accident.

At The Law Office of Craig Leydecker, we know the trucking rules and regulations and we will work diligently to gather the appropriate evidence to build your case. Overweight trucks, improper loading, and poor maintenance are common causes of 18-wheeler accidents and we know how to ask the right questions to determine if the rules and regulations were followed. Sometimes truck drivers violate these regulations by falsifying log books in order to meet strict delivery deadlines.

Another primary cause of trucking accidents is driver error resulting from fatigue, unfamiliarity with a road or road conditions, distraction or inattention, or substance abuse. Rules and regulations govern how long was the driver on the job, how often they must take rest periods, and how often they should be tested for drug use.

Our legal team will ensure that we have all the proper information to level the playing field for your case. We will hold the insurance company, truck driver, trucking company and any other liable parties accountable for your losses and injuries.

Multiple Negligent Parties

In motor vehicle accidents that involve 18-wheelers, usually there are multiple parties involved. Not only can the tractor-trailer operator can be ruled negligent, the transportation company can usually be held liable as well. Each negligent respondent will have their own personal attorney, and many times the defending transportation company will have multiple attorneys on the case. If it is a multi-vehicle accident, an accident re-constructionist may be needed to determine who is ultimately responsible, and whether other drivers were also negligent in some manner.
