Commercial trucks of all sizes are safety hazards on the road no matter how skilled or careful the driver is. Because of their weight, lack of maneuverability, many blind spots, increased stopping distance and greater potential for equipment failure, commercial truck accidents have a higher probability for causing serious to fatal injuries.
Trucking companies are responsible for hiring credible skilled drivers with clean driving records, ensuring driver logbooks are accurate, inspecting vehicles for maintenance issues, instructing drivers on proper loading of trucks and several other safety issues.
At Babbitt, Johnson, Osborne & Le Clainche, P.A., we hold trucking companies accountable if we can establish that their negligence caused you or a loved one serious injury or death. Our staff includes a full-time investigator — a former career police officer — and two paralegals who independently examine accident scenes, evidence and witnesses of all trucking accident cases we handle. They collect, document and preserve evidence, and we consult with experts to fully examine all aspects of your case.
We also represent truck drivers who were injured due to the negligence of their employers or the owners of the commercial truck they were driving.
