Bringing 17 Years of Experience to Your Truck Accident Case in GA
Trucking companies need to follow numerous state and federal regulations before enjoying the privilege of legally putting a driver on the road. For instance they need to:
Provide adequate safety training
Investigate drivers' driving records and licensure prior to hiring
Ensure drivers haven't violated driving rules/rules of the road
When trucking companies hire negligent drivers, fail to maintain vehicles properly or commit other acts of negligence, victims have a right to recover for these avoidable injuries. Macon truck accident attorney Tracey L. Dellacona, R.N., M.B.A. of Dellacona Law Firm can provide qualified and caring assistance.
Lawyer Dellacona is experienced in obtaining documents in injury cases and in gathering the full range of evidence needed to prove negligence by the other party and to recover compensation for injuries. Trucking cases hinge on finding documents which substantiate negligence including driver's logs, radio transmission records, safety training records, cell phone records and computer data from the black box.
Perhaps the driver will claim he or she made rest stops as required by law. We can determine whether the distance traveled in the time frame claimed could allow for the rest breaks that the defendant claims. Perhaps the driver claims he or she was not texting or talking on the phone at the time of the accident. We can obtain and examine phone service provider records. Perhaps the driver claims the speed limit was not being exceeded at the time of the collision. We can review the black box data records, obtain police reports and work with accident reconstructionists to determine truck speeds at the time of the accident.
In addition to her experience in the law, attorney Dellacona is a licensed nurse and can quickly assess injuries and their long-term effects. For more information and to schedule a no-charge consultation, please call 478-477-9000 or CLICK HERE to contact us via email.
