Is a driving hours violation one of the potential causes of your truck accident which results in injuries or a wrongful death?  Trucks driven by negligent drivers cause serious accidents resulting in catastrophic injury and often the wrongful death of another driver or passenger. That potential has resulted in stringent regulations governing the trucking industry, including limits to the number of hours that truck drivers are allowed to drive in a given period of time.

The profit motive of trucking companies leads to corners being cut and, unfortunately, hours-of-service regulations are no exception. If hours-of-service violations have resulted in injury for you or a loved one, it is important to have a personal injury attorney working to maximize your compensation for damages such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost earnings.

Nationwide Representation For Hours-Of-Service Violations

At Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington, our Louisville attorneys will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the accident that left you injured, searching for all evidence of negligence. We will review all potential causes including a driving hours violation and pursue damages from all liable parties, including the insurance companies that represent truckers and trucking companies that violate or enable the violation of hours-of-service regulations.

Truck drivers are limited to rules that limit the number of hours they can work in a day or within a week, including the 14-hour duty limit, the 11-hour driving limit, the 60/70-hour duty limit and the 34-hour restart rule.  A driving hours violation is a serious matter and opens the driver, their employer, the owner of the truck and other parties to extensive potential liability.

Our lawyers will determine which regulations were at play in your situation and fight aggressively to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
