The attorneys at Devereaux Law Group have developed effective defense strategies for trucking carriers and companies facing accident and bodily injury claims. Devereaux Law Group is a national law firm leader in trucking accident law, defending our valued transportation industry clients against serious catastrophic injury claims for over twenty years.
Statistics typically demonstrate that truck drivers are generally much more careful on the road than automobile drivers. Generally accidents involving trucks are not the fault of the truck driver and are the result of unforeseen road hazards or the negligence of other drivers. Trucking accidents are generally fact-intensive. These facts need to be ascertained quickly by, among other things, as soon as reasonably possible visiting and ascertaining the accident scene, and interviewing witnesses by experienced, knowledgeable and expert trucking industry attorneys or investigators.
We are well versed in the regulations applicable to the trucking industry, including Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), and with the trucking regulations peculiar to each state. We make these regulations work in defending carriers and truckers against accident cases, including issues of and relating to the safety performance scoring program, the FAST Act, Unified Registration System (URS), the New Safety Fitness Rule, Driver Coercion Mandate, More Training Required for New Drivers. Our firm successfully defends claims based upon FMCSA regulations, including, but not limited to:
- hours of service (HOS)
- electronic logging device (ELD)
- compliance, safety and accountability (CSA)
- drug and alcohol testing
- driver qualifications, training and hiring standards
- equipment and maintenance requirements
- emissions requirements
