New Jersey Truck Accident Injury Lawyers
Protecting Your Rights When Drivers Violate State or Federal Hour Regulations
Because of the potential for serious and catastrophic injury, the commercial trucking industry is governed by substantial regulations. There are specific restrictions on how many hours in a given period a driver may be behind the wheel and on the road. There are also requirements that drivers not be on the road too long without a break. Unfortunately, in an effort to maximize profits, truckers and trucking companies will ignore these regulations. The consequences of this can be devastating. If you have been injured by a truck driver who engaged in hour-log violations, the office of Harold J. Gerr, Attorney at Law, can help.
At the Law Offices of Harold J. Gerr, we have fought for the rights of personal injury victims, including people hurt in trucking accidents, since 1975. We focus our energy and effort on finding ways to help you win your case so that you can get full and fair compensation for all your losses. We understand the stress and anxiety that come when you have uncertainty about the status of your claim, or when your lawyer doesn’t return your calls or e-mails in a timely manner. So we place a premium on communication and will keep you fully apprised of all developments in your case so you can make good decisions about your future.
Because of our commitment to hard work and thorough preparation, we receive many of our new cases as referrals from other lawyers, or from existing or former clients.
Truck Accident Claims | Hour-Log Violations
One of the principal causes of truck accidents is driver fatigue. When you hire us to help you pursue full and fair compensation after a truck accident injury, we will fully investigate the facts and circumstances of your case, traveling to the scene of the accident if necessary to put together the most compelling case for your full financial recovery.
During the course of our investigation, we will ask to see all driver log books and any company records related to quantities of merchandise carried. We know how to read and interpret log books, and can tell when the amount of time allocated does not correspond with the amount of goods transported. We will also review maintenance logs to verify that drivers and trucking companies complied with all state and federal regulations.
