Iowa Delivery Truck Accident Lawyer

Holding Commercial Drivers and Their Employers Accountable for Injury

When delivery drivers are in a hurry, public safety takes a back seat. Many who drive commercial vehicles for a living do not have formal training or clean driving records. Putting these people behind the wheel of a truck too often results in injury to other motorists who share the road.

Iowa Delivery Truck Accident Attorneys

Commercial drivers have a higher duty to safety because of the size of their trucks and the potential for major injury or death. They may also have a higher duty by virtue of a commercial driver's license and the state and federal regulations that apply to CDL drivers.
