Understanding the Complexities of Trucking Accidents

Trucking accidents are complex and often devastating events. Our firm’s approach is rooted in a deep understanding of the various factors that can contribute to these accidents, including the critical role of DOT regulations and driver qualifications.

In-Depth Knowledge of DOT Regulations

Recognizing the importance of driver health and capability, we examine whether drivers involved in accidents met the DOT’s physical qualification standards.

We meticulously analyze compliance with hours of service regulations, which dictate the maximum driving time and necessary rest periods for drivers. This is a critical aspect, as violations can significantly impact driver alertness and road safety.

I have dealt with Sofia Zneimer since 2009. She is a great lawyer and has helped me tremendously in navigating the process of green card. She is a great resource to have by your side. She is easy to reach. She responds very quickly, which was very important for me. If she can’t answer the question the same day, she does let you know that she is working on it. I would have no hesitation in recruiting her. Hemant S.
