Des Moines Employer Negligence / Liability Attorney
Across our nation’s highways, large commercial trucks share the road with cars, motorcycles, and other vehicles. Because of the considerable difference in size between 18-wheelers and most other automobiles, it is critical that the operators of these vehicles are fully trained and competent to handle their trucks. Unfortunately, some trucking companies employ business practices that interfere with this important responsibility, either by violating the hours of service or by hiring unsafe or inexperienced drivers.
If you or someone you know has been injured in a trucking accident, it is possible that the negligent or reckless actions of the truck driver’s employer were responsible for your injury. Contact the Des Moines employer negligence lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., today by calling (515) 225-2600 to speak with a qualified legal professional about the details of your case and learn more about whether you may be able to seek compensation for your damages.
