When a trucking company hires someone to drive their 80,000-pound truck, that is also oftentimes at least 70 feet long and nearly as wide as the lane it is in, and asks that person to race around the roads conducting business, it can be dangerous. Often times trucking companies, then make matters worse by failing to keep safe business practices.
It is not surprising that people get injured by these large trucks, when things go wrong, and I have had the fortune and opportunity to work on many of these trucking cases. Our team has handled an extensive amount of trucking litigation, and we have seen it all.
When a crash occurs, often-times, the truck driver and the trucking company will try to cover-up what really happened to avoid liability. As such, we investigate these cases and use the evidence to prove the truth – that the trucking company caused the crash.
To do this, we conduct discovery and analyze driver statements, photos, interrogatory responses and the defendant driver’s testimony We also analyze the materials produced by the trucking company, and here is a short list of some of the things that we use:
1) Incident reports prepared by the driver or their manager;
2) Post-crash review analysis regarding “preventability” of the crash;
3) Notice of the claim to the trucking company’s insurers;
4) Insurer guidelines for the trucking company to use regarding driver selection and qualification;
5) The driver’s own qualification file that includes their application, MVRs (their driving record);
6) Guidelines from the trucking company regarding their safe practices and driving procedures;
7) Maintenance records or mechanic records of repairs made (or the lack thereof);
8) Dispatch records;
9) Pre-trip forms (or the lack thereof);
10) Electronic data from the engine control module (which is also available in some passenger car cases, and becoming more frequently available);
11) GPS data (not the driver’s GPS for directions, but tracking and positioning data so
that the trucking company can monitor its truck);
12) Camera and video footage from the truck; and
13) Driver logs (which are now frequently electronic documents stored in an onboard computer inside the truck’s cab)

At the end of the day, we will also depose all trucking company employees with knowledge of the crash, including mechanics, corporate representatives and dispatch personnel to discover all the important facts.
The trucking companies who drive with a USDOT number have a duty to following the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act, which places certain obligations on the motor carriers, including the obligation to hire well-qualified drivers. As such, my law firm also investigates these cases to assess whether there has been any negligent hiring retention and supervision.
Trucking cases are specialized cases and these trucking companies must be held accountable for the harms that they cause on our roads.
