How do I choose the best truck accident attorney in Wyoming?
Truck injury cases are common in Wyoming. They happen a lot because of our Interstates. We have I-25 and I-80 going through Wyoming, in different directions of course, and lots of injuries as a result. They’re main arteries through the country. Any trucking attorney has to take into account and be familiar with the complexities of these cases.
What puts the truck on the road are the qualifications of the driver, the training of the driver, and the supervision of the driver. Those are the three legs of the stool that make for a safe truck driver. Of course, on our highways we have to have people that are qualified to drive a truck, meaning that they have a CDL license but also have the qualifications health-wise and in terms of mental capacity to drive a truck and not have conditions such as sleep apnea. Those kinds of things disqualify a driver and need to be taken into consideration in every case – their health, their physical condition, their driving experience, but also their continuing training by the employer. That’s very important in every trucking case. The attorney has to be familiar with that and understand how a driver is qualified, trained, and then supervised. How are they supervised once they’re on the road? Are they supervised to the extent that they don’t drive too many hours, that they’re not too tired, that they have adequate rest, that they don’t drive too fast?
There are all kinds of ways that trucking companies can know and should know if a driver is driving too many hours, driving too fast for the conditions, because all of that is now monitored by systems within trucking companies. An attorney has to be familiar with those systems and system failures to really adequately handle a trucking case. There aren’t that many attorneys around that have those kinds of qualifications or that experience, so that’s the kind of attorney you need to look for in any kind of trucking case. If you have questions about this or any other matter, let us know.
