Wilmington Truck Driver DUI Accident Lawyer

Injured By A Drunk Trucker in North Carolina?

Professional truck and commercial vehicle drivers holding a commercial driver's license (CDL) are held to a higher standard when it comes to alcohol consumption. Under provisions of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act, a truck driver may be considered DUI if he or she tests for a blood alcohol content of just .04, or half the normal .08 required for a typical driver in North Carolina. Simply put, a truck driver should never drink and drive. If he or she does, we at the Rhine Law Firm, P.C., are ready to sue him or her, so nobody else will be needlessly endangered by these criminals.

In many cases, a truck driver may not be initially charged with DUI at the scene of an accident. To determine whether alcohol or drug use was a contributing factor in the wreck, a thorough investigation of the driver's log, truck company records and previous history of prior DUI may be required.

If you were injured in an accident involving a truck or commercial vehicle in North Carolina and the truck driver violated FMCSA rules regarding intoxication behind the wheel, you need an experienced Wilmington truck accident attorney with knowledge of how to investigate truck accidents and recover the critical evidence that may turn the case in your favor.
