How do rear-end truck accidents happen? The truck driver may have been speeding or was following too closely behind a car. The driver may have been texting or distracted while adjusting dashboard controls. Some drivers even fall asleep at the wheel when they have been on the road longer than hours of service (HOS) regulations allow. In some cases, brakes may have failed.
When the negligence of a truck driver or trucking company caused the rear-end accident that left you injured, you deserve financial compensation, but the process can be complicated. Drivers and companies may deny doing anything wrong. Insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible.
Attorney John S. Williams investigates your accident to get the facts. He seeks access to hours of service (HOS) logs, data from the truck’s event data recorder (the truck’s “black box”) and company records. He reviews accident reports and interviews witnesses. If needed, he consults accident reconstruction experts and other specialists.
