Alabama Truck Accident Attorney
Greg Reeves knows that handling an Alabama truck wreck case is unique. The trucking industry is governed by federal motor carrier safety regulations, as well as the rules of the road. In some semi-truck cases, an accident reconstruction expert must be hired in order to determine how the wreck occurred. The trucking company may have lease or operating agreements that must be reviewed as a part of determining who is responsible for the wreck. The safety of Alabama drivers is serious business and handling truck wreck cases is an area that Greg Reeves takes seriously.
There are rules that govern the operation of certain motor carriers that include what a truck driver is supposed to do during a pre-trip inspection, the maintenance of driver’s logs, and the appropriate hiring and training of truck drivers. In addition, truck drivers are subject to fatigue. There are regulations called “hours of service” that prescribe the number of hours that a driver is allowed to drive in a certain time period.
There is no cost for us to investigate and evaluate your truck accident case. If we accept your case, we will do so on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not owe us an attorney fee unless there is a recovery.
There is rarely a typical truck wreck case, as a variety of factors play a role in a collision by an 18 wheeler. As a part of our investigation, we will take photos of the scene, the vehicles involved, interview witnesses, obtain records from the trucking company and hire experts to review the data and records.
