DOT Statutes and Truck Accident Injuries

A violation of a DOT statute resulting in an injury or wrongful death can have a significant impact on the personal injury litigation. If an injured person is able to show that a truck driver, truck company or other liable party violated the law, it is typically much easier to prove liability.

The DOT statutes set forth a number of specific guidelines, including:

  • Testing for alcohol and drug use
  • Driver qualifications
  • Driver training
  • Truck maintenance
  • Driver fatigue
  • Driving in hazardous conditions
  • Loading and unloading of trucks

Our attorneys have successfully handled numerous trucking accident lawsuits. We will carefully examine all relevant maintenance records, driving logs and other evidence to pursue compensation for the losses you have suffered.
