CDL Violations Can Result In Job Loss
If you carry a commercial driver’s license (CDL), you are held to a higher standard of professionalism and conduct on the road. Unfortunately, this can lead to serious penalties and devastating consequences for even a minor traffic offense for truck drivers. If you receive a traffic ticket or face a hazardous materials violation and you have a CDL, it is crucial that you contact an experienced lawyer immediately.

Columbus Truck Driver Ticket Attorney
It is important to remember that a conviction for a traffic offense, or a hazardous materials violation, can have serious repercussions even if you are driving your own vehicle on your personal time. Let us help you fight the ticket or have it reduced. If you are convicted of this offense, you face consequences such as fines, jail time and loss of license — which could all ultimately lead to the loss of your job. We will fight to prevent that from happening.
Hazardous Materials Violations
For drivers who transport hazardous materials such as explosives, hazardous gases, flammable liquids, toxic materials, infectious substances, organic peroxides, or corrosive materials, a hazmat endorsement is just as essential to your work as your commercial driver’s license — a hazmat violation can take you off the road and deprive you of your income.
Violations can occur at any step in the shipping process, including:
- Loading and unloading
- Improper placards and signage
- Incorrect packaging
- Accepting improper shipments
- Missing or inaccurate information in shipping papers
If you are facing a suspension of your CDL due to hazmat violations, we can help you get back on the road and back to work.
