The Facts and Laws
Professional truck drivers and trucking companies are bound by specific rules and regulations found in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR). These regulations are revised and updated constantly. Remaining current regarding the latest regulations, as well as monitoring proposed regulations, is vital as an attorney.
When a professional truck driver causes an accident, it is most often the result of numerous FMCSR violations and both the driver and the company should be held responsible. In most car accident cases, it’s not critical that you immediately hire an attorney. But in trucking cases, it is extremely important that you hire a truck accident attorney immediately. The federal trucking regulations require drivers and companies to preserve valuable evidence, but some of this information can be disposed of as soon as 30 days after the accident unless your attorney notifies the company of your case and your request that they preserve the information.
The Key to Your Case
The federal trucking regulations limit the amount of consecutive hours a professional driver can be on the road. We’ve found that this is probably the most common law that drivers knowingly violate because they have strict deadlines and can even get bonuses for early delivery of their loads. To discover whether the hours of service rules were broken by a driver, our attorneys will request the following information:
- Log entries
- Fuel receipts
- Toll receipts
- Bills of lading
- Delivery manifests
- GPS tracking information
- Accounting records
- Trip envelopes
We then can compare all of this information to ensure that the driver is not falsifying his/her log books thereby putting other drivers in harm’s way.
Trucking companies have a duty to hire safe and responsible drivers and to adequately train and supervise them. When trucking companies and semi truck drivers violate trucking regulations and you or a loved one is injured, or attorneys will keep them responsible.
