Trucking accidents all too often involve catastrophic injury or wrongful death. As more and more 18 wheelers drive across Arkansas highways and interstates, more trucking accidents occur year after year. Due to the catastrophic personal injuries that are usually associated with trucking accidents and the complexity of laws and regulations covering interstate trucking, it is imperative that an Arkansas personal injury lawyer who has experience dealing with tractor-trailer accidents is consulted.
Paul Pfeifer has represented people who have been seriously and permanently injured due to the negligence of truckers and trucking companies. Oftentimes truck drivers violate the law by speeding, tailgating, driving under the influence of prescription and illegal drugs, driving while fatigued, and driving too fast. Trucking companies are required by law to perform background checks on their drivers. However, these background checks are oftentimes flawed or not done at all. Additionally, some trucking companies' policies force their drivers to falsify logbooks, drive with defective equipment, and drive long hours.
It is necessary that the truck accident attorney fully investigate the causes of the accident so that the injured person and their family can receive full and fair compensation through a settlement. Oftentimes this requires an expert accident reconstructionist and review of the trucking company's documentation to determine how and why the accident occurred. It is important to obtain this information as quickly as possible before it is lost or destroyed by the trucking company.
