Birmingham Truck Accident Lawyer

Birmingham, Alabama, with a population of about 242,820, is properly described as a metropolitan area, one with significant traffic, and numerous truck routes such as US 59, US 65, US 20, US 459, AL 11, AL 31, and AL 280, where accidents are waiting to happen. Anyone who works for a trucking company as a driver of a big rig, knows first hand what an environment of pressure is like. The bosses need the deliveries to happen on time, and that often means the drivers feel the stress. Long hours, little sleep, poor training, all contribute to the danger of sharing the roads with trucks. Although drivers are required to adhere to federal regulations involving time on the road, taking breaks and their loads, shortcuts in driver safety can result in negligence behind the wheel. Under federal and state laws, a trucking company may be held liable for driver negligence occurring in Alabama. A Gordon & Elias truck accident lawyer will vigorously defend an injured client’s rights by holding trucking companies and their drivers accountable for their trucking accidents.
