Complex Litigation Resulting In Multimillion-Dollar Compensation
Commercial trucking accident injuries are frequently catastrophic due to sheer size and force of energy of 18-wheeler haulers, concrete mixers, refrigerated trucks, crane bodies and other commercial vehicles. Insurance agents for corporate fleets are usually at the scene of the accident assessing damage and gathering data. These insurance adjusters often attempt to reduce their costs by minimizing an accident victim’s injuries.
Working with an experienced trucking accident attorney is essential to protect your rights to the maximum compensation following a catastrophic accident injury. At Michael J. Aviles & Associates LLC, our attorneys have assisted our clients to obtain multimillion-dollar awards. While we do not guarantee the outcome of your case, we have the experience to ensure all negligent parties are held accountable.
Commercial Drivers Are Held To Higher Standards
The U.S. Department of Transportation oversees the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) which regulates commercial vehicles and enforces safety procedures. The FMCSA works with those involved in the industry, including local unions, to reduce the number of accidents and injuries. The commercial vehicle industry is held to strict compliance in the areas of:
- Commercial drivers’ licenses
- Special training requirements
- Safety procedures
- Inspection, repairs and maintenance records
- Hours of service (HOS) of drivers
- Drug and alcohol testing
- Vehicle registration and insurance
- Reporting records of duty status
- Electronic Logging Device (ELD)
Violations can result in steep penalties. Our trial attorneys hold commercial vehicle owners and operators liable when their non-compliance of regulations and negligent actions result in traumatic brain injuries, neck, back and spinal cord damages, internal injuries, emotional suffering and even death.
We work hard to get our clients the optimal compensation for their injuries and loss.
