The Joe C. Savage Law Firm
A driver of an automobile has a duty to exercise reasonable care and to obey and observe the rules of the road. A trucking company and a truck driver owe the same duties but also must comply with federal and state transportation laws and regulations. These are often violated, particularly by allowing bad drivers to be employed or remain employed and by allowing or forcing drivers to operate over time limits.
Joe has been involved in many such cases, particularly where drivers are operating in excess of their time and are fatigued. These cases must be thoroughly investigated with production of numerous documents and records. Often experts should be employed.
