Get Dedicated Representation, Get The Facts And Get Paid
Why should you pay when an overworked, fatigued truck driver causes a devastating motor vehicle accident? Truck drivers are limited in the number of consecutive hours they can drive by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s hours-of-service (HOS) regulations. If a driver does not get adequate rest between shifts or does not properly account for time in their logbook, safety regulations may have been violated. In some cases, trucking companies encourage drivers to extend their hours of operation beyond safety regulations.
At Wesley, McGrail & Wesley PLLC, we know how to get the facts. We thoroughly investigate truck accident causes, which leads to analyses of driver logbooks, traffic conditions, road conditions, vehicle conditions, driver communications, trucking company policies and government regulations.
Holding Negligent Parties Accountable In Trucking Accidents
Our attorneys in Fort Walton Beach handle cases throughout the Florida Panhandle. We collaborate with accident reconstructionists and expert witnesses while building strong cases to prosecute injury claims. Truck driver fatigue leads to errors, and errors lead to traffic accidents. If you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries, we can hold the responsible party accountable.
In many cases, this means aggressively pursuing maximum compensation from the trucking company’s insurer. In some cases, our clients’ own insurers may be responsible for loss of compensation. Insurance companies are not always on the side of the victim. Insurance companies may aggressively fight to minimize or even deny compensation. This is not acceptable. We are prepared to fight for the compensation to which our injured clients are entitled. This can include expenses related to:
- Medical bills
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
- Long-term care
If you or a loved one was injured on Interstate 10, Highway 98 or any other road in the Florida Panhandle, call us immediately. We respond promptly to your needs and concerns.
