Massachusetts Commercial Truck Accident Lawyer
Commercial trucking is one of the most highly regulated industries in America. There are federal regulations, state regulations, and company regulations that deal with everything from how often drivers are required to stop and rest, to how much time drivers can work, to schedules of routine maintenance for the trucks themselves. However, despite all of this regulatory oversight, which is intended to keep Interstate trucking and other drivers safe, the bottom line in the trucking industry is about two things: how much can you deliver, and how fast can you get it there.
Arthur F. Licata, P.C. is a Boston, Massachusetts, law firm concentrating in personal injury law and on handling complex tort litigation in the state and federal courts of Massachusetts and New York. The firm's practice includes cases involving accidents caused by a driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs; commercial truck drivers failing to follow regulations concerning mandatory rest periods; accidents caused by improperly secured loads; accidents caused by poor maintenance of the truck; accidents caused by defective commercial truck components, for example, tire blowouts; and accidents caused by truck drivers simply ignoring ordinary safety precautions and traffic laws.
Attorney Arthur F. Licata is a sole practitioner who has been handling these types of cases for more than 30 years. He understands the complex rules and regulations involved in the trucking industry, and the complex laws and legal issues that apply to these cases. Mr. Licata works with investigators, engineers, accident reconstruction specialists, and other professionals to build the strongest possible case for trial.
The firm welcomes inquiries about its commercial trucking accidents practice as well as referrals from attorneys in other states. Free initial consultations are provided and all cases are handled on a contingent fee basis; you pay no attorneys' fees unless Mr. Licata is able to obtain compensation on your behalf.
