Unlike in an ordinary car accident case, an experienced and professional truck accident attorney has to thoroughly understand the federal and state laws and regulations that govern the trucking companies and their drivers.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, for example, are federal safety laws that govern every trucking company and truck driver in the United States.
These laws control everything from the type of training a truck driver is required to receive and the maintenance that must be performed on the truck, to the number of hours a driver can spend behind the wheel before they’re considered to be fatigued and required to take a rest break.
Our Lawyers understand the federal safety regulations and know where to look for critical evidence that proves that the trucking company and its driver were at fault.
Some of the most common causes of truck accidents and 18-wheeler accidents include:
Improper 18 wheeler training
Speeding, lane change and other violations of state traffic laws
Violations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations
Driving in excess of the limits imposed by federal law
Hiring unqualified and inexperienced 18 wheeler drivers
Drug use and intoxication
Failing to regularly and properly inspect and maintain the tractor or trailer
We’ll answer your questions, explain your rights, and make sure you have all the information you need to do what’s best for you and your family.
All consultations are free, and because we work on a contingency fee, you won’t pay us a dime unless we win your case.
