Hudson Truck Accidents Attorney

Have you been injured in an accident with a large commercial truck? When a truck driver is negligent, the results can be catastrophic, if not deadly. Trucks are some of the biggest and heaviest vehicles on the road, which puts all motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians at risk.

Trying to hold the responsible parties accountable can be challenging, especially if you try to handle it on your own. This is when you need the expertise of a skilled Hudson truck accidents attorney. At Roman & Roman, we understand the laws that large trucks are bound by and what is necessary to pursue a claim against the responsible parties.

How Negligence Plays a Part in Truck Accident Litigation

In truck accident litigation claims, there is the necessity to prove fault. This requires meeting all requirements in a three-pronged test. The elements are:

  • Was a duty of care owed to the plaintiff in the case?
  • Did the defendant breach this duty of care?
  • Did the breach result in the plaintiff being injured?

If you answer yes to all three of these questions, then the plaintiff will prove the defendant was negligent.

At Roman & Roman, our Hudson truck attorneys will work tirelessly to prove negligence against the other party, or parties. We will investigate the truck driver, the truck’s owner, and also the trucking company. We are looking at whether all state and federal laws have been

followed and safety guidelines met. Our investigation will look at whether or not the truck driver had a proper license to operate the commercial vehicle, did they have a valid medical clearance, and were all pre-trip safety inspections performed as necessary.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates every aspect of the trucking industry involving truck safety. This includes:

  • Weight limits for tractor-trailers
  • Required safety equipment
  • Maintenance of vehicles
  • Presence of required safety equipment

Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon that the trucking companies alter their log books and records to make it appear they are in compliance. This is one of the reasons it’s so important to have a Hudson truck accident attorney on your side.
