Trucking Accidents and Personal Injury Claims in Sanford, NC
It is crucial that you contact a Sanford lawyer if you have been injured in a trucking accident, as you may have a limited time to pursue compensation for your injuries. The majority of modern trucks carry an Electronic Data Recorder which contains detailed information regarding the truck driver's location at any point during his or her route, the truck's speed, and emails or other communications between the driver and the dispatcher. This information can be dumped in as little as two weeks after an accident has occurred if action is not taken to preserve it. Driver logs, which also carry relevant information to support a compensation claim, can be destroyed in six months, under federal law. This information can serve as valuable evidence a claim for compensation, but your attorney must act swiftly to preserve this and other evidence that could support your claim.
Accidents involving large trucks are increasing in number as the trucking industry continues to grow. With limited highway space that was not designed to cope with the current volume of automobile traffic, the number of large commercial trucks moving through the area poses a dangerous hazard to all those who share the road. Additionally, the American Trucking Association has cited a shortage of qualified truck drivers. This has forced the association to hire drivers with less experience, which significantly increases the possibility of dangerous accidents.
