Tractor Trailer Collisions

Commercial vehicles and their drivers are governed by federal laws to ensure the safety of the general public. The investigation of these cases is quite different from a standard motor vehicle collision. Expert testimony if often required to prove violations of these federal laws such as hours of service violations resulting in driver fatigue, failing to properly inspect the vehicle and trailer, failing to adequately secure a load, failing to adequately maintain the commercial vehicle and trailer, failing to properly record hours of service, failing to be medically qualified to operate a commercial motor vehicle, negligently hiring and retaining drivers, etc.

Ray has successfully handled several tractor trailer collisions involving these and other issues.
