If you are a victim, don't wait to talk to a lawyer about your commercial truck accident in Alabama.

Contact a Truck Accident Lawyer for Experienced Help
When you have been in an accident with an 18-wheeler, hiring a lawyer to make a timely legal claim is critical. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) permits trucking companies to destroy all trucking records—including driver logbooks—after a 6-month period. Courts are limited in fairly adjudicating your case if they don't have this important evidence. Therefore, waiting too long to seek legal advice could seriously jeopardize your ability to receive compensation.
