Oklahoma City Hours of Service Violation Lawyers

The physical demands of driving a commercial truck are often underestimated. However, driving for extended periods of time can compromise a driver’s ability to concentrate and react to dangerous situations on the road. Commercial truck drivers must drive long hours on a daily basis as part of their employment. However, there are federal regulations restricting how many hours a commercial truck driver can drive, and trucking companies who endanger the public by pushing drivers beyond these limits may be subject to legal action.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, a skilled and experienced attorney can help you to determine whether trucking company negligence might have been a contributing factor. Contact the Oklahoma City hours of service violation lawyers of the Abel Law Firm at (405) 239-7046.

Damages from Hours of Service Violations

Because commercial trucks are significantly larger and heavier than the typical passenger car, they are likely to cause considerable damage in the case of an accident. Drivers who drive for extended periods of time are required to take time to sleep. Violation of these hours of service rules can lead to the presence of fatigued drivers on the roadway, and the victims of the accidents that these truckers cause may be able to sue for financial compensation for the following:

  • Medical bills for current needs and future, related expenses
  • Repair bills for your vehicle
  • Lost wages if you can’t work because of an injury from the accident
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of a loved one in case of fatal accidents

Car accidents due to hours of service violations are especially painful because they could have been avoided if the trucking company had managed its fleet correctly.
