Phoenix Truck Driver Log Violation Lawyers
State and federal laws dictate that semi-truck drivers may only operate their vehicles for a certain amount of time each day. These laws are to be strictly enforced for the safety of the road-using public.
Multiple studies have shown that increased fatigue and sleepiness directly impact and impair a driver’s ability to drive safely, particularly 18-wheelers and other heavy trucks that make long, multiple hour trips at a time. Any small error and overcompensation can cause a devastating accident for drivers on either side of the highway when trucks jackknife, roll over, veer out of their lanes or lose cargo.
Nonetheless, drivers commonly try to optimize their time, pushing their hours spent on the road beyond the maximum hours allowed by law. This time may or may not be accurately reported in the drivers’ logs submitted to the trucking company, or the trucking company itself may influence drivers to doctor their logbooks.
What Should You Do If You Were Involved In A Truck Accident?
If you or a loved one has been severely injured, or killed in a trucking accident, you can take appropriate legal steps to ensure that the trucking company responsible for logbook violations, CDL violations or truck driver negligence is held accountable.
Trucking companies are often committed to fighting negligence claims, not sharing evidence and being uncooperative. It is important that you have skilled representation on your side, fighting for the maximum injury and damage compensation that you and your family deserve for medical expenses, lost wages, emotional suffering and other losses.
