An Investigation and Evaluation by Your Truck Accident Lawyer at The Sessions Law Firm Will Cost You Nothing
We understand that for me many people thought of calling a lawyer and, particularly, paying a lawyer can be intimidating. You will not pay our trucking accident lawyers a dime unless we obtain a recovery for you. Our Macon traffic accident lawyers are only paid if we win payment on your behalf.
The commercial trucking accident lawyers at The Sessions Law Firm understand the tremendous devastation that can occur as a result of accidents involving tractor-trailers. We also understand that, following many of these accidents, our clients want more than simply to get paid. Our clients most often want justice and understanding. Our clients want to know that the commercial trucking company is being held accountable for their carelessness and taking steps to correct their wrong. Our clients frequently also want to understand how such a tragic accident was permitted to occur.
A thorough and complete investigation is crucial to providing many of these answers for our clients. If we intend to find out how the work permitted a driver to operate a commercial vehicle on less than adequate sleep, we need to investigate the employer’s standard practices and the routine of the driver. If we need to find out how the employer permitted the operation of a tractor-trailer in less than safe conditions, we need to investigate the employer’s method of inspecting and maintaining the tractor-trailer.
It Is Very Important that Your Macon Truck Accident Lawyer Understands the Complex Regulatory Scheme Governing Commercial Carriers.
There are steps that we can take to help our clients get the answers they want and deserve following a truck accident, but we need to begin investigating the accident as soon as possible following the occurrence. If you would like to learn more about the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and its role in oversight of commercial carriers, their site provides a tremendous amount of information on the rules governing commercial trucks.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (also known as the FMCSA) operates under the authority of the Department of Transportation. The FMCSA works to prevent commercial motor vehicle-related deaths and injuries.
The FMCSA works to increase the safety of commercial carriers (commercial trucks) by:
- strengthening enforcement of regulations governing commercial carriers,
- identifying and strengthening enforcement aimed at high-risk commercial carriers and drivers;
- improving commercial carrier safety systems and technology;
- strengthening commercial carrier equipment and operating safety standards;
- and increasing safety awareness.
The FMCSA helps create a network of enforcement activities among federal, state, and local enforcement authorities.
