We Seek Accountability For Truck-Driver Error That Causes Injuries

There’s a reason truck drivers must have a special license. There’s a reason the federal government limits the hours they can drive without rest. An 80,000-pound tractor-trailer has the potential to cause enormous destruction in a collision with an ordinary car.

If a truck accident seriously injured or killed your loved one, truck driver error is very likely to blame. The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC, has the experience, knowledge and access to experts to hold employers accountable for their truck drivers’ negligence. Our Manassas, Virginia, law firm has obtained significant verdicts and settlements in trucking accidents. We take cases in Prince William, Fairfax and Fauquier counties and throughout Northern Virginia .

Did Truck Driver Error Cause the Crash?

Our attorneys use professional investigators (retired law enforcement officials) and experts in truck accident reconstruction. We document skid marks and debris, gather witness accounts, examine the vehicles, obtain the driver’s log books and analyze the truck’s “black box” data recorder to determine what happened.

Some accidents are caused by poor maintenance of the truck, road conditions or error of other drivers. But a large percentage of truck accidents are due to truck driver negligence:

  • Fatigue from driving more hours than DOT regulations allow
  • Inattentive driving (failure to stop, pulling out into traffic)
  • Judgment error (lane changes, failure to gauge stopping distance)
  • Traffic violations (speeding, illegal turns, running stoplights/stop signs)
  • Failure to maintain the lane (crossing the center line, sideswiping cars)
  • Drug or alcohol impairment

Commercial hauling companies are liable for driver errors. They are also liable for falsified logbooks, inadequate training of drivers, and negligent hiring of drivers with criminal histories, numerous traffic violations or substance abuse problems.

The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC, is dedicated to getting to the root cause, and committed to getting full compensation for our clients who suffered devastating injuries or wrongful death. If we cannot convince the trucking company and their insurance carrier to offer a fair settlement, we are trial lawyers and fully prepared to bring evidence to a jury.

We have a strong record of success in proving truck driver error. Contact our Manassas office as soon as possible so we can get to work while evidence is fresh. Call 866-719-4394 for a free consultation. We offer home and hospital visits, and take all personal injury cases on a contingent fee basis, which means you do not pay us unless we obtain compensation for you.
