Truck Accident Liability

Truck accidents are different from auto accidents because the trucking industry is subject to strict federal and state regulations. The federal government recognizes the dangers that trucks pose, which is why they created The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR), which govern nearly every aspect of the trucking industry to ensure safety and to minimize accidents. Some examples of these rules include maximum hours a driver can be on the road per day (known as Hours of Service) and stringent hiring and training of qualified truck drivers. If truck drivers and companies fail to abide by these rules, then they can be held liable for any injuries that result. In fact, it is not uncommon for truck accidents to have more than one liable party - the truck driver, trucking company, and even truck manufacturer can be held liable.

Common violations of federal trucking regulations include:

  • Driving more than the maximum driving limit
  • Speeding or reckless driving
  • Overloading trucks
  • Improperly securing cargo
  • Failing to comply with regular truck maintenance
  • Failing to properly screen and/or train drivers

We can investigate your claim to help you identify the cause and source of negligence, and whether any federal trucking regulations were violated. From looking through driver logs to sifting through trucking company's hiring records, we diligently analyze all available evidence to help you build a strong claim.
