When you’re injured in a car/truck accident, it’s anyone’s guess as to what was going on in the cab of the truck at the time of the accident. This is unfortunate, because determining the actions of the truck driver can make or break an injury case.
A significant challenge when litigating truck accident cases is determining whether substance abuse played a role in the accident. When a trucker imbibes in alcohol, illegal drugs or prescription drugs and causes an accident, how do you prove the consumption took place, that it affected the trucker at the time of the accident and that it caused the accident?
Our lawyers work with toxicologists and other medical experts to determine the levels of alcohol and drugs in defendants’ systems, and we investigate the defendant’s substance consumption and abuse history by interviewing witnesses, deposing employers and analyzing medical records.
