Truck Driver Error

Holding Negligent Parties Accountable

Under state and federal law, commercial trucking companies are responsible for the proper hiring and training of their drivers. Unfortunately, trucking companies too often play a role in serious and fatal truck accidents by allowing impaired, inexperienced or fatigued drivers on the road, or by placing drivers with a history of poor driving habits behind the wheel of a semitruck carrying thousands of pounds of freight.

If you have been injured, or someone you love has been killed, in a truck accident caused by truck driver error, the attorneys of Jeff Carter Law Offices, P.C., can help you fight for full compensation for your injuries. We will also work to prevent the negligent parties from causing harm to others in the future. With 30 years of combined experience, our lawyers have secured multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients injured in truck accidents in Des Moines and throughout Iowa. We can help you, too.
