IL CDL violation lawyerCommercial truck driving is one of America’s largest and most critical industries. Commercial truck driving is a crucial part of our lives but does come with some inherent risks. Due to the sheer size of commercial trucks, they are more difficult to operate and collisions tend to be increasingly destructive. It should come as no surprise that more than 4,000 people died in commercial trucking accidents throughout 2018 alone. Because of this, law enforcement officials are cracking down on commercial truck driving negligence. If you have been cited for a CDL violation, it is time to seek out a knowledgeable defense attorney.

Most Common Forms of Truck Driver Negligence

When a truck driver is cited for a CDL violation, it is critically important to act quickly. In the United States, the most common CDL violations include drinking and driving, speeding, recklessly passing other vehicles, and other forms of reckless driving. It is also important to note that some violations that can result in a CDL violation may not be the fault of the driver. In some instances, a company will improperly load or care for a vehicle leaving the driver with an overloaded or improperly maintained vehicle. Regardless of the reason behind your CDL violation, hiring an attorney you can trust is critically important.

How an Attorney Can Help

If you are charged with a CDL violation, you can face significant fines and suspension or revocation of your CDL. With such a massive impact on your livelihood, you need to hire an experienced attorney to help you fight against the CDL violation. If the violation was the fault of the company, your attorney will work diligently to prove that you had no knowledge of the negligence displayed by your employer. Violations such as driving under the influence and aggravated speeding can also be challenged in court through a number of defense strategies.
