Cardinal Logistics Truck Accident Attorney

Thomas Hostetler and Vin McLoughlin founded Cardinal Logistics Trucking, a privately held corporation focusing on contract carriage. By 1980, the company founded Cardinal Freight Carriers, Inc. in North Carolina with a small fleet of 14 tractors. In 2012, Center bridge Partners acquired the company.

In 2013, Cardinal integrated its business with Great wide Trucking that was initially formed in 1967 as RTI. This integration created a massive dedicated fleet of transport vehicles that crisscross the country. Today, the company provides services throughout the United States, including Puerto Rico, with over 4000 drivers and over 3035 trucks. In 2018, the company generated more than $613 million in revenues.

Many businesses use Cardinal Logistics Solutions to manage their transportation needs better and maximize their supply chain management. The dedicated fleet is filled with service-oriented truckers that better manage their operating procedures and delivery schedules. This process frees up customers’ management time to build on their customer relations and reinvest in their business.

Cardinal Logistics is an LTL (less than truckload) carrier, meaning the company delivers mixed freight. This type of trucking is opposite a Truckload (LT) carrier that delivers truckloads containing similar products, goods, and materials to multiple locations. The company provides transport for agricultural products, building materials, chemicals, dairy, manufacturing goods, food and beverages, medical supplies, retail products, steel, and recycling goods.

Common Causes of Commercial Vehicle Collisions

Statistics by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) revealed many of the common causes associated with large commercial vehicles in the United States that include:

  • Distracted Driving – Truckers are often distracted while looking at their GPS device, talking on a smartphone, reading text messages or emails, or eating/drinking beverages while driving.

  • Driving Under the Influence – Truckers must avoid consuming alcohol or taking illegal drugs, including stimulants, which can create a dangerous scenario for all those sharing the road.

  • Changing Lanes with a Blind Spot – Nearly one out of every three crashes involving a large commercial vehicle and a passenger car is the result of the motor’s failure to recognize oncoming traffic due to a blind spot. If not seeing a truck and the mirrors could cause a catastrophic accident.

  • Aggressive Behavior – Aggressively operating a vehicle could result in wrongful death or severe injuries of innocent passengers and motorists.

  • Passing Commercial Vehicles – It is crucial to accelerate a constant speed when passing commercial vehicles on roadways. Never signal that you are moving over until you can see the entire front of the truck in the rearview mirror.

  • Drowsy Driving – Truck drivers should never operate their vehicles for long hours without taking breaks to minimize the potential of driving while tired.

Sometimes, the commercial vehicle driver will cause a crash because of their erratic movements or failure to ensure there was a substantial distance between their vehicle and those sharing the roadway. In these cases, both the trucking company and the truck driver should be held legally responsible for the crash and pay all associated costs and expenses that led to the wrongful death or severe injury.

The victim must follow legal rules when filing a compensation claim to the insurance company or presenting evidence in front of a judge and jury. Injured victims can submit a claim for compensation or file a lawsuit against every responsible party and take their case to court or negotiate an out of court settlement.

  • Hospital expenses, medical bills, and the cost of treatment and rehabilitation
  • Lost past, present, and future earnings caused by time away from your job
  • Rental vehicle expenses while your car or truck is under repair
  • The cost of replacement of your total car or truck
