Federal Trucking Laws

There are rules and regulations put in place by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to ensure that drivers and operators are safe on the road. These regulations include the amount of time that a driver can operate a vehicle, the allowed blood alcohol content for drivers and the recording of all maintenance and mileage in a driver's log. When you work with my firm, I will review the accident and look to see if any laws or regulations were violated.

Who is responsible for my big rig accident?

There are a few different parties that could be held responsible for your injuries, including:

  • The Driver
    If the driver was operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol, acting in a negligent manner or driving recklessly, they can be held liable for your injuries. An attorney will determine if they at-fault or at least partially at-fault for the accident.
  • The Manufacturer
    In some cases, a product failure can be the cause of the accident. If a part on the vehicle failed to operate as it should, such as brakes or steering components, the manufacturer of the product may be held liable.
  • The Loader
    Trucks with open beds or trucks carrying heavy loads should always have their loads properly secured by a loader. If a loader did not correctly weigh or secure the cargo prior to moving, the cargo may shift and cause an accident.
  • The Owner
    If the owner of the company is responsible for maintenance on the vehicle and they failed to do so, they can be held at-fault for your injuries. An attorney can determine if the owner of leaser of the vehicle is liable.
