Driver Fatigue Accident Attorneys in San Antonio
Holding Tired Truck Drivers Accountable
Truck drivers in Texas and around San Antonio frequently drive for long stretches at a time without a break to make up time lost in traffic, to meet certain quotas, or because the more they drive, the more money they make. Unfortunately, this practice causes a lot of drivers to fight to stay awake behind the wheel. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) require that drivers take breaks at specific intervals and stop driving after a certain amount of time so they can sleep. When truck drivers ignore these regulations, innocent people can pay the price.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured or killed in an accident involving truck driver fatigue, you need a lawyer who is experienced in dealing with trucking companies, their insurance, carriers and the tactics they use to avoid liability. At Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C., we know how to counter these tactics and hold the trucking company and its driver accountable for the harm done to you. Our truck accident attorneys have the experience, knowledge, and resources to obtain maximum compensation for your injuries.
We serve injured clients throughout Texas. For more information, call our firm at Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C.
Protecting Your Rights & Your Interests
The first thing the truck driver typically does after an accident is call into his or her trucking company. The company, or its insurance carrier, will send out an investigator. This person's job is to mitigate the potential liability on the part of the trucking company.
The insurance adjuster may try to:
- Cover up evidence
- Blame the accident on you
- Persuade you to sign your rights away
Do not sign anything an insurance adjuster or company representative gives you before you talk to one of our San Antonio lawyers. Regardless of the injuries you sustained, you have rights after a car accident. Let us protect them. We will handle all communications and negotiations with the trucking company and its insurance carrier so you can concentrate on the hardest job of all: Healing from your injuries.
Why Choose Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C.
Our team works closely with experts in accident recreation, engineering, and medicine to create a full picture of your situation. We present this information to the trucking company and its insurance carrier to begin negotiations for compensation on your behalf. From there, we will take your case as far as required to get a successful outcome – even if that means going to trial.
Our team is prepared to stand up for you and fight hard to achieve favorable results. Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C. has earned a reputation for relentless advocacy, which we strive to maintain with every case.
