Truck Wrecks And Your Rights
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations Are The Bible, The Sins Of Truck Drivers And Companies Cause Wrecks
The dramatic growth in truck traffic on national highways is one of the reasons for the increase in truck accidents. Another cause is the presence of unregulated trucks from other countries on our roads, especially those from Mexico who enter the United States under NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement).
Wherever they are from, trucks cause catastrophic injuries or death when they are involved in an incident with a car, a motorcycle or a smaller truck. When those accidents and injuries are the result of negligence, the law provides compensation to victims or their families.
That's where we come in.
At John T. Montgomery: Attorney At Law, we work on maximizing compensation for truck wreck victims, including compensation for current and future medical costs, pain and suffering, lost earnings and more. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck incident, our lawyers can inform you of your rights, including the right to:
Know whether the driver was under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
Request the driver's logbooks
Find out whether the driver was using his or her cellphone
View the driver's and company's previous wreck history and safety rating
Obtain data from satellite tracking devices that can verify speed
See the driver's ticket/citation history
