Olathe, Kansas Truck Accident Attorney
The majority of drivers that share the road with 18-Wheelers have no idea how many truck drivers are in blatant violation of many commercial driver’s regulations. Truckers must log all of their hours while on duty, including driving, on-duty not driving, off-duty and their 10-hour break. However, many drivers neglect or falsify their log in order to drive longer hours. This can lead to devastating consequences. Also, every truck driver must do a pre-trip inspection of his or her equipment. This inspection checks for tire pressure and tread, proper working brake and signal lights, and any other issues that are a hazard on the road. This is another area that is neglected by truckers, which leads to accidents. Are you a victim of a truck driver’s neglect? If so, you need a tough truck Accident attorney to fight for you.
