A truck accident can cause devastating injuries.  These trucks are enormous and can weigh as much as 38 tons. There are many good truck drivers who obey all the traffic laws while transporting their cargo. However, there are some truck drivers who ignore safety regulations, so they can transport more cargo in less time.

The Joel Bieber Firm handles many South Carolina truck accident cases.  These types of cases require special knowledge of laws that pertain to a commercial drivers’ license.  It requires an understanding of the following:

  1. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations
  2. Hazardous Material Regulations
  3. Hours of Driving
  4. Corporate Liability

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that its responsibility is to “investigate safety defects in motor vehicles, help state and local communities reduce the threat of drunk drivers, promote the use of seat belts and provide consumer information on motor vehicle safety”.  As truck accident attorneys, the problem we see as truck accident attorneys is that companies and drivers may try to cover up the facts surrounding a truck accident. For instance, since 1939, truck drivers have been required to keep a log book to document that they are complying with the “hours of service”.  In our past investigations, we have found that the truck driver may be keeping two separate log books, so as to look like the driver is in compliance.  In some of these circumstances, the trucking company knew of this and took no action or even encouraged this violation of law.

It is important to put the Joel Bieber Firm to work quickly, so the evidence does not begin to disappear.  If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident with a tractor trailer, contact us now for a free consultation.
