The Importance of Retaining Experienced Truck Accident Lawyers

As Experienced Arizona Semi-Truck Accident Lawyers, We Know How to Successfully Litigate Complex Trucking Accident Cases on Behalf of Clients

Commercial interstate truck drivers and trucking companies must abide by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act rules and regulations promulgated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).  The FMSCA was established on January 1, 2000 as a separate administration within the Department of Transportation.  One of the main purposes of this administration is to develop and enforce regulations concerning certain aspects of interstate regulation, including those required to balance safety with legitimate trucking business.

In investigating accidents involving trucking subject to the these rules and regulations, we will want to determine whether the driver and company were in compliance with such rules and regulations, and if any non-compliance may have played a role in the accident.  A key aspect of investigating these accidents is understanding the federal rules and regulations, including those requiring the keeping of detailed driving logs and maintenance records.  By understanding these aspects, in litigation we are able to subpoena the information that may relate to our client’s case, and to take other action that may show non-compliance, which may be critical to prevailing in a lawsuit for our client.

We have long represented clients injured in semi and other commercial interstate trucking cases.  Firm Senior Partner Richard Traulsen has served as the past national chair of the Trucking Litigation Group of the American Association for Justice (AAJ).  He is also a frequent lecturer at their educational programs on Trucking Litigation.  Firm attorneys are also AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rated (the highest rating possible) by Martindale-Hubbell® for their legal ability and ethical standards.  In addition, we are the only firm in Arizona to have had two attorneys who were presidents of the American Association for Justice.
