Some of the most important regulations for big truck accident cases are:
- Pre-trip inspections (49 CFR § 396.9)
- Loading procedures (49 CFR § 393.100)
- Distracted driving
- Lights and reflectors (49 CFR § 393.11)
- Hours of service

THEORIES OF LIABILITY IN ROME BIG TRUCK ACCIDENT CASES
As big trucks enter the center of Rome with their loads on Highways 27 and 411, big truck accidents are bound to occur. Sometimes fault lies with the big truck driver being fatigued, under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, or being distracted by cell phone use. At times, big truck drivers may be speeding or hauling loads over the weight limit. Other times, fault for the big truck accident can be attributed to mechanical failure or faulty repairs performed on the big truck.
To help develop a theory of liability in your Rome big truck accident, your attorney at Williams Elleby will have an extensive investigation performed. Our big truck accident attorneys work with trucking industry and accident reconstruction experts to determine the cause of the accident. Next, your Rome big truck accident attorney will take information from the experts and combine it with his/her knowledge of commercial safety regulations to develop a theory of liability to prove your case.
Once a theory of liability has been established, your big truck accident attorney at Williams Elleby will work hard to negotiate a fair settlement amount. First, a pre-suit settlement demand will be sent to the at-fault insurance company. If a fair amount can be agreed upon, then your case will settle. If both parties cannot come to an agreement during negotiations or during mediation, then with your permission, your Rome big truck attorney will file a lawsuit on your behalf. The big truck accident attorneys at Williams Elleby are ready to fight hard for you from the beginning of the claims process all the way through trial, if necessary.
