Trucking Regulations

trucking regulations

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations cover all trucks involved in interstate commerce. The regulations cover a wide-range of topics including hours of service requirements, drug and alcohol testing, weight restrictions, qualifications of drivers and the inspection, repair and maintenance of vehicles. The regulations can be viewed here.

Despite heavy regulations, the trucking industry is still plagued with unfit drivers, corner-cutting companies and defective equipment. Your case is much stronger if there was a violation of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and that violation played a role in the accident. In fact, depending upon the extent of the violations, you may be entitled to punitive as well as compensatory damages.
