There are fewer tragedies as abrupt and severe as those resulting from a truck accident. Generally, any surviving motorists suffer very serious personal injuries due to the sheer size and speed of the vehicles involved. Yet what makes semi-truck accidents all the more tragic is that they are almost always the direct result of some violation of federal regulations.
I am attorney Stephen I. Leshner, and I have more than three decades of experience practicing law. In that time, I have represented many clients in tractor trailer accidents and achieved historic results. If you’ve been injured or you have lost a loved one in a fatal trucking accident, please contact me to schedule a free initial consultation to review the facts of your case.
Truck Injury Negligence: Drivers and Trucking Companies
Almost all car-truck collisions share two common features:
- The victims suffer catastrophic injuries brain injury or back injury or they are killed
- the truck driver or trucking company violated the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FCMSRs)The FCMSRs regulate:
- How many hours a driver can spend on the road
- How to safely load cargo
- How to keep trucks properly maintained
- Among others
I often find that when a collision occurs, driver fatigue, loading violations, bad brakes or other such factors almost always seem to have played a role. I can help discover the exact cause of a trucking accident, identify the at-fault party, and seek the appropriate compensation for my clients.
Skilled at Preparing Truck Accident Cases
I am highly skilled in preparing and developing trucking accident cases, and have collected millions of dollars for my clients in trucking accident cases. For example, if an 18-wheeler accident was caused by driver fatigue, and the truck driver appears to have improperly filled out his mileage log book (some have admitted to doing so habitually), I can often prove it by using both trip receipts and computer software designed to calculate the truck’s minimum possible speed.
I often see value in cases that other attorneys pass up. However, I never accept a case unless I am confident that I can secure compensation for my clients. Please contact me online or call 602 266-9000 if you would like to schedule an appointment to discuss your trucking accident case.
