BRADENTON, Fla., March 11, 2016 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Attorney Bernard F. Walsh was published in the Lawyer's LogBook, a legal industry periodical that includes articles from some of the nation's best plaintiff's attorneys.
The article, co-written by experienced trucking accident attorney Bernard Walsh, and attorney Elizabeth DeWitt, entitled "The A To Z Basics Of A Trucking Accident Case," advises attorneys who may be considering representing the victims of heavy truck accidents.
In the article Attorney Bernard Walsh notes that while just 3 percent of all accidents involve heavy trucks, large commercial trucks are responsible for 12 percent of all traffic accident deaths. The article goes on to point out that trucking accident cases are more complex and challenging for an attorney to successfully represent, in-part because trucking companies are very aware of the potential costs from lawsuits and will aggressively defend themselves.
Trucking companies may seek to hide or make unavailable log and other recorded data needed by attorneys representing the accident victims, as such the article advises the plaintiff's attorneys to act immediately to ensure the best chance of obtaining accurate logging data. Additionally, the article continues by advising attorneys on moving forward quickly including building a team of professionals from many fields such as accident reconstruction, photography and videography as well as towing and salvage.
Attorney Bernard Walsh had this comment about being published in the Lawyer's LogBook, "It is my hope that sharing my experience on trucking accidents with other attorneys considering taking a trucking case will help the victims of negligent drivers. Many fatal accidents are caused by drivers that break federal and state regulations on how many hours a driver may work during a week, and as a result the driver becomes fatigued.
"Study after study has shown that driving overly tired can be worse than driving drunk, and all too often this can resulted devastating trucking accidents. Many trucking firms will mount an aggressive legal defense, and as such the victims legal team will need to be fully prepared for the large amount of time and resources that will be required to successfully represent their clients."
