Bradenton Truck Accident Lawyer
Holding Trucking Companies Liable
Commercial vehicles are massive pieces of machinery that share the same roads and highways as the general public. With an extremely high potential to cause injuries and horrific harm, truck accidents have become a concern for numerous organizations and agencies throughout Florida and the nation. The goal of these agencies, such as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is to reduce the risk of trucking accidents and to keep others on the road safe.
The FMCSA enforces hundreds of laws and regulations surrounding the trucking industry. These include regulations for driver safety and training, as well as the duties of trucking companies to ensure maximum safety on the roadways. Some of the most common regulations include:
- Hours-of-service regulations to reduce risks associated with tired drivers
- Weight and load restrictions
- Adequate and regular vehicle maintenance
- Driver drug and alcohol testing
After truck accidents occur, trucking and insurance companies begin investigations immediately. Their efforts are geared toward deflecting allegations of negligence and reducing their liability as much as possible. With our collective knowledge of federal trucking regulations and personal injury law, our legal team can work toward finding the cause of the accident, clearly establishing negligence, and holding trucking companies liable for the damages they caused victims.
