Columbia Cell Phone Truck Accident Lawyer

Truckers struggle with multiple distractions inside and outside the cab. Any distraction is potentially deadly for other individuals out on the road, who can be run over by a truck. If you were injured in a truck accident, cell phone distraction might be the culprit. Reach out to The Stanley Law Group. A Columbia cell phone truck accident lawyer with our firm can go over the details of your accident and provide an overview of your legal rights. We provide an objective analysis of the facts and, if hired, will begin fighting for you.

Who Can You Sue for a Truck Accident?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) oversees the trucking industry in the United States. They have adopted a rule prohibiting truckers from using handheld phones while driving. Any trucker who violates the rule can be fined.

Although hand-held devices are prohibited, the FMCSA does allow “hands free” devices. This hands-free option should ensure both hands are on the steering wheel. Of course, this law won’t prohibit other distractions, like cognitive distraction. A phone conversation can take all your mental energy, and a trucker can easily become mentally distracted even if he is looking at the road.

Any trucker who violates the rule is also probably at fault for a collision. This means they are “at fault,” and you can seek compensation from the trucker’s insurance policy.

At The Stanley Law Group, we can seek financial compensation when our clients are injured by distracted truckers. A cell phone is very distracting—even hands-free devices. We can sue the trucker for:

  • Economic damages like medical bills and car damage.
  • Future economic losses, such as ongoing medical treatment or loss of earning capacity.
  • Pain and suffering and other non-economic damages.

Distracted drivers are often speeding because they are too focused on the conversation to check their speed. Consequently, many collisions are devastating, and your vehicle can sustain heavy damage. Reach out to our law firm as soon as you can after a crash. We have tips for which documents to preserve to help show the dollar value of your claim.

In some cases, we might also sue the trucking company for your accident. Many of them put pressure on their truckers by setting unrealistic deadlines. They might even encourage a trucker to use a cell phone which is against the law. A trucking company should also have liability insurance to pay a settlement.
