Topeka Truck Accident Attorney

25+ Years of Experience Serving Clients throughout Kansas

Large trucks are among the most massive vehicles on the roads. It is fairly common for someone who is sharing the road with a truck like an 18-wheeler to be slightly anxious, and it is a feeling that may have just cause. The sheer size of large trucks means that they are a major cause of serious accidents with major injuries.

Due to the size and complexity of these vehicles, operators of commercial trucks are held to much higher standards than the typical driver of a small car. If a driver of a commercial vehicle makes even a minor error, it can have adverse impacts. If you or a loved one has suffered from a trucking accident in Kansas, you deserve skilled legal help. Our Topeka trucking accident attorney is the one to call. Reach out to Roger Fincher Attorney at Law today to find out how we can assist you.

Proving Fault in Trucking Accidents

Far too often, commercial vehicle operators are trying to make a deadline, causing them to work beyond the hours they should. A fatigued driver carries a far higher risk of danger. Whatever form of negligence was behind your accident, our skilled legal team and trucking accident attorney can prove that the truck driver or company is liable to pay you damages.

For instance, we may be able to prove that the crash was caused by:

  • A truck operator driving while drunk
  • Loads beyond the maximum capacity of a vehicle
  • Drivers who aren’t paying attention
  • Lack of adequate maintenance
  • Drivers who are fatigued
  • Errors while operating the vehicle

Truck Drivers and the Regulations They Must Follow

Trucks are so large and heavy they are incredibly dangerous in the event of an accident. Because of this, truckers are much more heavily regulated than other motorists on the road. One of the notable regulations truck drivers must follow is called the hours of service regulations. These rules were established as a way to try and ensure truck drivers are well rested and not overworked, since fatigued driving is a big cause of accidents on the road. According to these regulations truck drivers must:

  • Only work up to 14 hours in a day. However in these 14 hours they are required to take rest and meal breaks during this period making them only able to drive for 11 hours.
  • Rest for at least 10 consecutive hours before returning to work.
  • Take days off work at regular intervals. Generally, drivers must take a break after working up to 60 or 70 hours in a 7 or 8 day period depending on the hours the company they drive for holds.
