The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has a number of strict transportation rules that govern the conduct of commercial truck drivers. The regulations were put in place to ensure the safety of the drivers as well as all the other motorists on the road with them. Any failure to accommodate these regulations can create a very dangerous situation that can lead to extremely serious accidents and injuries.
If you or a loved one has been injured in any kind of trucking accident, be sure that you have an experienced attorney behind you who will give you the best chance of obtaining the justice you deserve. At the Law Office of Steven Haney, we represent clients in all types of these cases. With more than 20 years of experience practicing law in Will County and the surrounding area, you can feel confident that your case is safely in the hands of a skilled Joliet regulatory violation attorney.
Holding Negligent Truck Drivers Accountable to the Law
With every trucking accident case we accept, we conduct a thorough investigation to determine cause and liability. When it is suspected that regulatory violations have contributed to the cause, we can subpoena the truck driver’s log books and/or data from the truck’s “black box” or GPS unit to gain the detailed information we need. We use that information to build your case and pursue the maximum level of compensation available for your injuries.
Our firm has initiated claims based on a variety of regulatory violations, including the following:
~Driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol
~Driving without the proper credentials or certifications
~Falsifying or failing to maintain accurate log books
~Driving on a suspended or revoked CDL
