When Professional Drivers Fail to Drive Professionally

Getting a commercial driver’s license (CDL) is not like getting a license to drive a car. Far more rigorous training is required. The goal of these training requirements is to make certain that the people who end up behind the wheels of semitrucks know how to drive professionally and minimize the danger to those they share the road with. When drivers make errors and fail to drive professionally, it can result in truck accidents.

At Rittgers & Rittgers, our Cincinnati lawyers have more than 30 years of experience holding truck drivers accountable for their errors. Proof of our ability to overcome all challenges can be seen in the millions of dollars in compensation we have recovered for people like you. No matter how difficult your case may seem, no matter how serious the injuries, we can help.

If you were hurt in a truck crash, you need good legal counsel.

Protecting Our Clients’ Rights

Our attorneys know that evidence cannot be taken at face value when it comes to looking for truck driver errors. When we review logbooks, we have to keep in mind that these are often falsified to cover up the fact that a truck driver has spent too many hours on the road.

One of the more valuable pieces of evidence is the semi-truck’s electronic control module, referred to as the black box. It records speed and braking information. Not surprisingly, this information often does not correspond with the information in the truck driver’s logbook. We take this as a clear sign of negligence and proof of an accident caused by truck driver error.
