Truck Driver DUI

What Happens If A Semi Driver is Driving Drunk?

Drinking and driving is against the law for a reason. People can be seriously injured or killed due to this recklessness. When a semi is involved, the injuries can be much worse due to the sheer size of the truck. Our lawyers at Chiariello & Chiariello have a full understanding of the DUI laws and can help you if you were injured due to a drunk truck driver.

Truck drivers are not allowed to consume alcohol for four hours before driving a commercial truck. When they are driving, they should not have any trace of alcohol in their blood even if it is below the legal limit. Companies that employ these drivers must regularly test them for drugs and alcohol. If you are involved in an accident, you have the legal right to file a personal injury claim.

How Is Fault Determined In A Car Accident?

If you decide to file a claim against the driver, first a lawyer will have to decide whether it is the driver's fault or the company's fault. For example, you must determine if the driver was acting in accordance with his or her job duties. This includes looking at the type of work the driver does. You can trust us to look at all the facts in the case and help you make the best decision possible.
