Investigating the cause of the accident
The FMCSA covers a broad range of issues which may have caused the accident. These issues may include:
- Failure to perform safety inspections and maintain safe vehicles
- Failure to ensure brakes are in good condition
- Failure to load trucks properly
- Failure to hold drivers to hours limitations
- Failure to hire qualified drivers
At Andrews law firm, we believe that Investigating the details of any automobile accident is paramount to determine driver’s negligence and to successfully pursue 18-wheeler accident-related injury claims. Such investigations must include access to the truck’s “black box”. This box is an important tool that records the vehicle’s speed and other important information that might give an insight as to what could have caused the accident. Andrews law firm also takes pleasure in employing an accident reconstruction expert to decode the cause of the crash and to serve as expert witness in case litigation if necessary, to secure full recovery for our clients.
In addition to investigating the trucking company and the truck in question, we will also look for evidence of driver negligence. This can include reviewing drug or alcohol tests given to the driver.
