Did a Violation of Trucking Regulations Cause You Injury?
In order to protect the safety of both truck drivers and other motorists, the federal government heavily regulates the driving and operation of commercial vehicles. According to the Department of Transportation, there were more than 49,000 truck crashes during 2008, many of which could have been prevented had these regulations been followed.
If you were injured or a loved was killed in an 18-wheeler accident or semi crash where trucking violations may have been a factor, you have a right to seek compensation.

We Seek Full Compensation From All Responsible Parties.
There are many regulations regarding the operation of commercial vehicles, including regulation of:
– Driver qualifications.
– Proper training methods.
– The hours a driver can legally drive per shift, day and week.
– Maintenance of driving, operation, maintenance and safety records and logs.
– Equipment and maintenance.
– Proper loading procedures and allowed weights.
– Transportation of hazardous materials.
– Drug and alcohol use.
– Insurance coverage.
