How Speeding Can Affect Your Truck Accident Case
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, there are approximately 6 million certified commercial drivers operating in the United States and more than 60% of freight shipped in the U.S. is transported by 18-wheelers and large commercial vehicles. Along with increasing numbers of truckers on the road comes increased risk for other motorists, especially when those truck drivers are negligently or recklessly operating their vehicles.
Even if you personally witnessed a truck driver speeding or driving recklessly, it can be challenging to prove it in a court of law. We understand the trucking industry and know how to access records that reveal truckers’ mileage, destinations, arrival times, etc. Upon reviewing such records, we may be able to help you determine whether they were driving over the speed limit or driving too fast for roadway conditions.
Even if you have evidence that the truck driver was at fault, trucking companies’ insurance providers are notoriously difficult to reason with and tend to avoid liability at all costs. However, with a tough, experienced truck accident lawyer on your side, you have a much better chance to recover the compensation you deserve.
