Investigating Truck Companies

Resourceful Representation from Harrisburg Truck Accident Lawyers

Since commercial trucks and 18-wheelers are so large, they can pose a threat to the safety of passenger vehicle drivers if not handled correctly. The trucking industry is regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The FMCSA has put in numerous regulations and other standards to ensure that truckers don't lead to any increased risk of accidents on the road. Trucking companies are required to keep records on driving hours and other information, such as if a driver has been in an accident before or struggled with substance abuse in the past. They are also required to provide appropriate training and implement safety measures.

If your accident occurred due to a negligent truck driver, it may not be just the driver's fault. That is why Metzger Wickersham helps our clients investigate truck companies in these types of cases. Our Harrisburg truck accident lawyers know all too well that liability can fall on multiple parties.

What Our Attorneys Look for After an Accident

Insurance companies don't try to help victims after a truck accident - instead, they try to mitigate their liability and the liability of the trucking company and any other at fault-parties. You need a tough, resourceful advocate on your side who can help you identity fault and liability in your accident case.

We start by carefully investigating the accident and company involved, looking for details such as:
  • Past police reports
  • Who was responsible for loading / maintaining the truck
  • Insurance coverage held by the driver / company
  • Driver logs
  • History of moving violations or incidents for driver
  • Background checks
  • Hiring and supervising practices
  • Training materials

If a trucking company failed to properly follow FMCSA standards or violated procedures in some way, they could be held liable for the extensive damages you suffered. Retaining a seasoned truck accident attorney in Harrisburg who has navigated cases like this before is highly advised.
