A Tractor Trailer driver was recently charged with following too closely after slamming into a school bus in Statesboro, Georgia.
Here are some things we would investigate to prove the Truck Driver was Negligent:
- First, I would want to analyze the truck driver’s log.
- This log reflects when the truck driver starts his day, all stops along the way, and certifies that he has inspected his tractor and trailer.
- Next we want to see if the driver was properly licensed.
- Did the driver have the proper commercial license, training and experience before getting behind the wheel? If the answer is no, the trucking company may be held liable for the wreck because of the negligent hiring or retention of the driver.
If you or a family member is involved in a wreck with a tractor trailer, time is critical in securing evidence against the driver.
These types of cases can be very complex and you certainly don’t want to take on the insurance company and the trucking company alone.
