Barnes Law Firm — Comprehensive Personal Injury Representation for 20 Years
A number of factors can contribute to truck accidents or accidents involving large highway vehicles: the driver, his or her qualifications, character and experience, how he or she got behind the wheel, overloaded freight, and the driver's fatigue, speed, or even his or her substance abuse habit are all relevant to each and every truck accident case. A lot of trucking companies dispatch tractor-trailers on schedules so tight that they often cause truck drivers to operate their trucks for an unreasonably long period of time at a high rate of speed despite the law. Practices like this only increase the potential danger for other drivers and can cause truck accidents.
Thomas Barnes understands commercial insurance, interstate transportation laws and truck and large vehicle mechanics, as well as the federal regulations such as drug and alcohol testing and truck driver service hour requirements. You can usually count on a trucking company to have a large insurance policy or policies that it is willing to protect without any regard to the cost — and you can depend on Mr. Barnes to protect your interests too.
