Home of the Columbia Memorial Space Center and the birthplace of the Apollo Space Program, Downey has a rich and nuanced history. It wasn’t so long ago that this Gateway City boasted California’s busiest intersection, where present-day Lakewood and Firestone Boulevards meet. This bustling city, located on the southeast quadrant of Los Angeles County, has seen a growing number of commercial trucks hauling cargo across and within state lines.

Hours of service violations  

Drowsy driving poses a considerable threat to other motorists, and accounts for roughly 30 percent of all accidents involving commercial trucks. There are federal laws outlining the allowable hours of service for licensed drivers of commercial vehicles. For cargo-carrying truck drivers, this is limited to a maximum of 11 hours a shift after 10 consecutive hours of rest. If a truck driver violates this regulation, they, and their employer may be held responsible for any resulting injuries and damages.  

Liability issues can be complicated, as manufacturing defects and lax maintenance can also come into play. The sooner you speak with a Downey truck accident attorney, the sooner we can begin investigating and preparing your case.
