We Understand Federal Truck Regulations
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has a set of guidelines and regulations that all commercial truck drivers and the companies must adhere to. These rules are in place to minimize risk and keep drivers—and anyone sharing the road, for that matter—safe.
These are the following requirements under the FMCSA:
- Drivers must not exceed the maximum number of working hours, without resting
- All drivers must have been given proper training before taking on assignments
- Regular maintenance and safety checks must be performed on the vehicles
- Drivers must refrain from using alcohol and drugs—zero tolerance policy
- Cargo must be secured, and the truck must not exceed the maximum allowable weight
Our Columbia truck accident lawyers can examine your case, to determine if any of the FMCSA regulations were violated. If so, then the truck driver or his or her employer, may be held accountable for these actions, which led to the accident. We can then use this information, along with the documentation regarding your injuries, medical bills, lost income, and other expenses, to develop a claim that is suited to your particular needs and sets you on the right path toward success.
