Determining Liability After a Truck Accident
The investigation of a truck accident is a search for the truth. Attorney Scott J. Corwin will take immediate steps to investigate your accident and preserve evidence that can prove substantial liability on the part of the trucking company and the driver.
Common Causes of Truck Accidents in San Bernardino
Federal regulations prohibit semi-truck drivers from driving more than 10 hours per day, and the regulations require eight hours off for every 10 hours of driving. Unfortunately, many drivers violate these regulations. Our attorneys will collect driver logbooks, fuel and food receipts, and evidence that can determine whether driver fatigue was a factor in your case.
Speed is also a factor in many accidents and can result in devastating jackknife and rollover accidents when a driver loses control of a tractor-trailer.
Other examples of negligence include:
- Driving overloaded trucks
- Driving with unsecured loads
- Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Defective brakes or lights
- Defective tires
- Hiring unqualified drivers
Your case will be personally handled by our founding San Bernardino truck accident attorney, Scott J. Corwin. He will listen to your story, explain your legal options, and fight on your behalf to obtain the highest possible compensation for your injuries.
