Don’t Fight the Trucking Company on Your Own

Like all drivers, commercial truck drivers must follow the rules of the road. However, semi truck drivers and trucking companies must follow additional regulations designed to decrease the possibility of serious accidents between commercial trucks and passenger cars.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is responsible for special regulations governing truck drivers and trucking companies. When investigating the causes of a major trucking accident, it is important to review whether the driver and trucking company complied with all relevant safety regulations. Evidence that the driver or trucking company violated federal safety rules helps build a strong case for the accident victim to get all necessary compensation.

  • Unrealistic schedules and deadlines that encourage reckless driving
