A truck accident case begins with the investigation, and it is critical. Because of the risks trucks pose, the federal government highly regulates the trucking industry to ensure the safety of those who share the roads with these large vehicles. The law requires trucking companies to keep detailed driver logs and maintenance records. Trucks often carry black boxes that record valuable data about location, time, driving habits and accidents. CAIL will thoroughly investigate your Richmond truck accident, and gather all the information critical to your case.
The cause of a truck accident is a key factor in determining liability. Most are familiar with the fact that truck drivers spend long hours behind the wheel, avoiding sleep to meet deadlines and make more money. This might be just one of several factors in a truck accident. Fault may result from one or more of the following factors:
Distracted truck driver
Truck driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol
A loading company overloaded the truck with cargo
Poorly maintained truck by the truck maintenance company
Truck company employees were poorly trained.
CAIL will work with your doctor and other medical specialists to determine how extensive your injuries are, and what care and treatment you need to get better. The same individuals who care for you, may also provide critical insights to support your case during mediation or at trial.
