Truck Driver Negligence

Louisville Truck Driver Negligence Lawyers

Helping the Injured in Kentucky

Truck driver negligence is a leading cause of trucking accidents. Reckless driving, excessive speed, permit violations, and other acts of negligence can cause serious injuries to individuals in passenger vehicles. Our lawyers seek to hold negligent drivers accountable for their actions that leave innocent people dealing with life-altering injuries.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a trucking accident caused by driver negligence, contact a Louisville truck accident attorney from Dolt, Thompson, Shepherd & Conway, PSC. Our firm offers a free initial consultation and handles all cases on a contingent fee basis.

Call a Lawyer as Soon as Possible After the Accident

Our firm advises injured clients to seek legal counsel as soon as possible after your trucking accident. Working with expert accident reconstructionists, we will begin an immediate investigation into the cause of the accident. Reconstructionists analyze aspects of the accident scene such as skid marks, crush impact to the vehicles, and sight line visibility to determine what happened and who is at fault.

Often, truck driver negligence is the main cause of the accident, and is evidenced by:

  • Speeding
  • Driver fatigue
  • Substance abuse
  • Log book errors
  • Failure to yield right of way
  • Pulling in front of vehicles
  • Tailgating
  • Cell phone use

Seeking Maximum Compensation Against All Negligent Parties

When truck driver negligence leads to severe injuries, we fight hard to ensure that all responsible parties are held liable. We will not only pursue a personal injury claim on your behalf against the truck driver, but we will also seek to hold the trucking company responsible in cases of inadequate training, inadequate background checks and other improper management.
