The trucking industry is heavily regulated by state and federal law in regard to certain safety requirements, driver training, and how long a truck driver can drive continuously without stopping to rest. At The Law Office of Casey W. Stevens, our lawyers work with accident investigators and forensic specialists to determine if a driver ignored safety regulations or if actions on the part of a trucking company were involved in causing the accident. In cases where driver fatigue may be the cause of an accident, we review GPS data and compare it against a driver's log book to determine if the truck driver exceeded the maximum allowable drive-time hours. In cases involving excessive speeding or reckless driving, we analyze the contents of a truck's on-board black box data recorder, measure skid marks and interview eyewitnesses.
We have the experience and knowledge of the trucking industry to expose negligence on the part of truck drivers and the trucking companies they work for.

Trucking accidents often result from a violation of federal motor vehicle regulations. This could mean that a driver has been logging too many hours and not getting enough sleep, or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. It can also mean there has been a failure to maintain the vehicle in accordance with legal standards.
These accidents often result in serious bodily injury, including post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD), traumatic brain injury, and even wrongful death. At The Law Office of Casey W.
