Accident with an 18 Wheeler? Documents You Need to Prove Your Case Can be Legally Destroyed After Just 6 Months

Accident with an 18 Wheeler? Documents You Need to Prove Your Case Can be Legally Destroyed After Just 6 Months

 Posted by:    Jan 20, 2009  

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations ("FMCSR's), require motor carriers and drivers to create and maintain a wealth of information that can help prove and WIN YOUR CASE! The lawyers at Anderson, Hemmat & McQuinn are uniquely qualified to obtain and then use information, including driver qualification files, driver logs, supporting operational documents, maintenance records, e-mails, and satellite tracking, to uncover and prove that the defendant carrier was allowing, encouraging or even requiring its drivers to drive over hours at excessive speeds in equipment that had not been properly maintained.

Unfortunately, THE PASSAGE OF TIME WORKS AGAINST US. The FMCSR's allow carriers and drivers to DESTROY MANY KEY DOCUMENT in as short as 6 MONTHS. Consequently, it is important that people who advise victims of trucking related crashes, make all efforts to get these victims in consultation with a QUALIFIED ATTORNEY as soon as possible. Sadly, many attorneys "dabble" generally in any kind of personal injury that they come across. However, handling major trucking accident litigation requires SPECIALIZED understanding and a commitment to staying current on all rules and regulations involving the trucking industry, AS WELL AS THE KNOW-HOW TO GET THE EVIDENCE INTO COURT.

Senior partner, Chad Hemmat is one of only a very few Colorado attorneys who is also an active member of the Association of Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America.
