Truck drivers are required to keep a detailed log of their daily driving, but many drivers and companies keep false logs. This is a serious problem because logging hours falsely can cause serious accidents.
Each year, truck accidents injure or kill thousands of people. Many of these accidents are caused by driver fatigue. Trucking companies often pressure their drivers to get as many loads as possible between mandatory rest breaks. As a result, many drivers lie about the number of rest breaks they take during the course of a trip.
Our truck driver attorneys at Christina Rivenbark & Associates take hours of testimony from the driver, examine the logbook, gather receipts and maintenance records, and so on to prove that the driver was, in fact, violating the hours-of-service laws.
