Long Beach Truck Accident Attorney

Justice After Truck Drivers Fail to Operate Safely

Certain regulations govern truck drivers' use of the road. These rules are meant to protect not only the drivers, but also those who share the road. Since they have to drive long hours and operate heavy equipment, the laws often mandate rests, regulate equipment inspections, and determine appropriate cargo weight.

If a truck driver neglected these regulations, causing you personal injury, contact the Law Offices of Jonathan D. Winters for a consultation. We've represented personal injury claims in Long Beach for more than 15 years and look forward to serving you.

Truck driving regulations involve:

  • Prohibition of operating a vehicle while intoxicated
  • Specific licenses that are required to operate different vehicle classes
  • Predetermined hours of service for the driver, mandating breaks and limiting maximum driving hours
  • A limit on the weight a truck can carry
  • Specific requirements for labeling of hazardous materials
  • Regular inspections of the truck's brake system to make sure it's in good shape
  • Clean driving record for company truck drivers

Move Quickly to Make Sure You Can File a Claim

Some personal injury claims are subject to a statute of limitations, or time limit, during which you must file a claim. For trucking accidents, this statute of limitations is determined by the state, and sometimes the county, within which the accident occurred. This time limit is meant to help preserve evidence, working in your favor to strengthen your case while making sure the conditions which incited the accident are still able to be examined.

As soon as you are able, contact our Long Beach truck accident attorney for an intelligent review of your case. The Law Offices of Jonathan D. Winters offers consultations at (562) 473-4777.
