Proving Truck Driver Negligence in West Virginia

In order to keep drivers and the other motorists on the road around them safe, there are a number of rules which have been put in place for truck drivers. There are currently national regulations in place that place limitations on how many consecutive hours truck drivers can work daily and weekly. The three regulations most commonly broken by truck drivers are the 14-hour drive window, mandatory rest breaks, and the 60-70 hour rolling weekly limit. Truck drivers who choose to drive over those limits are endangering themselves and others on the road. This information can be accessed via digital and analog log books. A skilled West Virginia personal injury attorney can launch an extensive investigation into your truck accident injury claim to find out the details of what happened and who should be held responsible for the damages.
