    I was in non moving traffic with my flashers on on an icy afternoon and a car shoots in front of traffic,slips and collided with my trailer resulting in a fatality. Along in the investigation the officer start to think my logs are suspicious and charge my company with false logbook violations. I need to know what will that mean for me and do I need a lawyer.

    i think it best not to divulge too much information here or any other website. law firms have people that browse thru websites, and if they even suspect that you are the one they are going to sue, they can use this all against you.

    Key word is FATALITY. As soon as I found out, I would have lawyered up. They are going to bring up things from your 3rd grade report card.

    BTW, luck in battle, hand. You need all the help you can get.

    I detest lawyers and their whole scumbag profession, but you’ll likely have one of the aforementioned scumbags on your tail with a wrongful death lawsuit before too long. You’ll need one of them unfortunately.

    You were stopped and someone crashed into you and died?
    As long as your logs are legal you're gonna be OK. If not you'll be sued and held responsible if you couldn't be there legally regardless of his actions.
    Do Not Speak w Any Attorney But You're Own.
