Birmingham Truck Accident Lawyer

Commercial Trucking Litigation

Although many Alabama attorneys handle car wreck cases, few are qualified to handle the issues that can and will arise in any collision involving a tractor-trailer. Drivers of heavy trucks are subject to federal motor carrier safety regulations that do not apply to passenger vehicles. Determining whether the truck driver complied with these laws can have an important bearing on liability in your case.

 

At Riley & Jackson, P.C., we have the experience and resources to
handle serious truck accident cases. We represent victims of truck
accidents throughout the southeast. We offer a free initial consultation
to answer your questions and evaluate your case.

Liability in Commercial Truck Collision Cases

Relevant information contained in driver logbooks, on-board com-
puters, and GPS units can be lost if your attorney does not provide
proper notice to the trucking company. Trucking companies are allowed
to destroy much of this evidence after a short amount of time unless
requested not to do so. Our well-prepared attorneys can mine this
evidence for critical information regarding:

  • The truck's location and speed before and at the time of the collision
  • The truck driver's maneuvers, braking, and communications leading up to the time of the collision
  • The driver's history, including whether he or she took legally required rest breaks to prevent driver fatigue
  • The weight of the truck to determine Whether the truck was overloaded at the time of the collision

If this information is destroyed, it will be lost forever and cannot be used to determine exactly how the collision occurred.

Holding truck drivers accountable: Our lawyers are experienced in handling cases where the truck driver attempts to avoid responsibility. One example is the case of Roger Walsh, a Florida resident whose wife was killed and daughter was injured in a collision involving an 18-wheeler in Alabama. The driver of the truck left the scene and later denied that he was involved in a collision. Read testimonials from Roger Walsh and other clients.
