The Attorneys at Aubrey Givens and Associates have significant experience handling trucking accident cases and lawsuits. Our attorneys are well versed in Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and the rules truck drivers in all fifty states, including Tennessee, are required to follow. Unfortunately, the rules that truck drivers are required to follow are often broken. When these rules are broken, drivers on our highways and interstates are the victims. Truck drivers are limited to the number of hours they may drive in a day and are also required to keep detailed logs of their schedules and hours. Also, while it may seem like common sense, truck drivers are prohibited from operating their trucks under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Throughout America it is becoming more clear that Truck Driver fatigue is a growing cause of accidents. Not only is this a concern for the safety of the drivers themselves but for the public in general.
The Attorneys at Aubrey Givens and Associates have the skills and experience to investigate every aspect of a trucking accident case. Our attorneys will review the logbook of the driver, the maintenance records on the vehicle, and the employment record of the driver, to name a few. It is essential in trucking accident cases to employ experienced and skilled counsel that will not let the high paid trucking company representatives intimidate them. Accidents involving semi-trucks are often some of the most devastating auto accident cases we come across. This is due in part to the size and speed of semi-trucks. Just as a trucking accident case is different from an auto accident case, the handling of the cases are different as well. Trucking accident cases often involve interpretation of complex rules and regulations and preparation for detailed and involved legal proceedings. The Attorneys at Aubrey Givens and Associates have handled numerous trucking industry cases and are well prepared to represent you in your case.
An 80,000-pound truck does more than carry a shipment across the country, when a negligent driver is behind the wheel, it can be a deadly weapon. When truckers are careless or negligent, innocent motorists on Tennessee roadways can get hurt.
The commercial trucking industry is one of the most highly regulated in America. A Violation of a law or regulation can be used to establish negligence on the part of a trucking company or truck driver after an accident. If you have been the victim of a trucker’s negligence, call Aubrey Givens and Associates at 615-444-4LAW
Always remember that the trucking industry is a business, and the owners of trucking companies are out to make a profit. Companies often push their drivers to drive longer, faster, and cheaper. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations contain rules regarding driver fatigue, vehicle maintenance, training, safety, etc.
We are trained to believe that when we are in a vehicle collision that it is an accident. When a driver or company has violated the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, it is no accident. Repetitive and intentional violations can lead to increased settlement amounts and verdicts and can get dangerous truck drivers off of the road. When profit is their sole motivation, the safety of your family on the roadway often falls well below the bottom line for trucking companies. If you have been involved in a collision with a semi, it is essential that you contact a competent Tennessee attorney. The Attorneys at Aubrey Givens and Associates have handled numerous cases against large and small trucking companies and in each case, we have done our best to hold those companies and drivers responsible for the harm that they have inflicted upon motorists. When a company places profits ahead of public safety, there is simply no excuse.
