Trucking Expertise

Truck accidents are far more complex than your average car accident. Truck drivers and trucking companies must comply with the voluminous regulations set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Our lawyers are familiar with the many issues which arise in the typical trucking case such as claims of negligent hiring, training, supervision and retention. Hours of service, periodic blood and alcohol testing and safety training are just a few of the many regulations unique to a trucking claim.

Engineering and Data Analysis

Our attorneys rely on science to support the claims and defenses of our clients. We routinely deal with engineering experts in the fields of accident reconstruction, biomechanics and human factors to conduct forensic investigations into the root cause of a truck accident and resulting injuries. Such experts are frequently required to download ECM’s from trucks and ECU’s (black boxes) from cars in connection with their investigation. Data from GPS and video is also utilized whenever available, as well as laser scanning for precise measurements.

Medical Experts

On the injury and damages issues, we frequently retain, consult with and depose various experts in their specialty fields to evaluate both noneconomic and economic damages.  Noneconomic damages involve experts who commonly diagnose and treat injuries commonly seen such as broken bones, herniated discs, nerve injuries and traumatic brain injuries.  Medical experts include doctors in the fields of orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, forensic neuroradiology, psychiatry and neuropsychology.  These experts are necessary to properly evaluate the nature, extent, and permanency of claimed injuries and disability.  In terms of economic damages, we regularly retain and consult with vocational rehabilitation experts, economists and CPA’s to properly evaluate the nature and extent of lost wage claims and claims of lost earning capacity.
