Was truck driver drug abuse or drunk driving the cause of your accident and serious injury? We can help you find the proof you need. Call 1-866-586-1910 to speak to an experienced lawyer in a free consultation.

Trucking companies are supposed to adhere to a zero tolerance policy regarding truck driver drug or alcohol abuse, and yet serious and fatal truck accidents involving alcohol and drugs still occur with alarming frequency. Drunk driving, illegal drugs and over-the-counter stimulant abuse can kill, especially when the abuser gets behind the wheel of an 80,000 pound vehicle and takes to the road.

When truckers drink or do drugs and trucking companies turn a blind eye, the experienced lawyers at the Law Offices of Dallas W. Hartman are here to hold them accountable for the harm they cause.

Contact us immediately if you suspect that drunk driving or drug abuse played a part in your serious truck accident injury. There is no charge for the initial consultation, and if there is no recovery, there will be no fee.

It is extremely important in cases of truck driver drug abuse or drunk driving to launch a full-scale investigation immediately. The experienced team of attorneys, investigators and independent trucking accident experts at our firm can act swiftly to:

  • Get police reports, hospital reports and subpoena field sobriety evaluations and any breath or blood test evidence before the trucking company's lawyers have a chance to get their hands on it
  • Gather vital evidence at the crash site, including everything from empty prescription bottles and over the counter medication packaging to illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia

There are so many investigators involved in a serious truck accident — representing local and state police, federal agencies and insurance companies — they often fail to communicate well with each other. Crucial evidence can sit in a storage room because the agency does not realize its value, or it can be swept under the rug by the trucking company or their insurance carrier.

The insurance company's main goal is to avoid or minimize payment for the cost of an accident. Our goal is to help you get the full and fair compensation you deserve for the damages or loss you have suffered. Contact us now to take the first step with a free case evaluation from a lawyer experienced in drug abuse and drunk driving truck accident cases in Pennsylvania and Ohio.
