Truck Driver Fatigue — Truck Accident Attorneys
The best chance of gathering the necessary evidence to build a strong case for compensation after a truck accident occurs during the first few hours and days after the crash. Valuable information and key objects are much more difficult — and sometimes impossible — to uncover after more time has gone by. This is especially true in the case of a truck driver's log.
A truck driver is required by law to keep his or her logbook for a certain period of time. After that time has passed, the log may be destroyed. The driver's log often tells what investigators want to know about the driver's state of alertness and other key factors such as:
- Hours on the road
- Hours of rest
- Truck maintenance and safety checks
For more than 20 years, Joseph M. Marrone, Jr. has investigating the causes of truck accidents with the goal of obtaining compensation for injured motorists. A detailed investigation may also look into the amount of training the driver had received as well as other driver-related factors that may have contributed to the crash. Did the driver have proper training? Did he or she have any previous traffic violations or disciplinary actions on record? Was there any problem with eyesight or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs?
All facts related to your truck accident are pertinent to the question of what caused the accident. Understanding the cause helps determine liability and open doors to sources of compensation for your injuries and losses such as:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wage replacement
- Therapy and rehabilitation
- Disability accommodations
