Did A New York Truck Driver Commit A Logbook Violation? Our Truck Accident Lawyers Will Investigate.
Suffering a serious injury or losing a family member in a truck accident can be devastating. A truck versus car accident typically results in catastrophic injuries or fatalities for the occupants of a car. You owe it to yourself, after such an accident, to investigate the cause of the crash and pursue all available compensation.
Money cannot give you back your life as it was before the accident, but it can help you pay for medical expenses, therapy, rehabilitation, home remodeling (as a disability accommodation), personal care attendants and adaptive technology. It can replace lost wages and if necessary, pay funeral and burial costs.
Logbook Violations Can Be A Sign Of Truck Driver Fatigue
An injury claim or lawsuit may offer an opportunity to recover needed compensation after a truck accident. A key to a successful truck accident case is to determine the true causes. Truck drivers under pressure to deliver more loads sometimes fudge on their mandatory logbooks. Some even keep dual logbooks: the official one looks compliant. The other logbook, an informal one, tells the truth. A prompt, thorough investigation may succeed at recovering both logbooks and exposing the discrepancies.

Driving hour violations also lead to truck driver fatigue. Any evidence that the truck driver was likely fatigued or neglecting safety protocols can become part of an argument for full, fair compensation. Falsification of driving logs is a violation of federal and state laws.
