Accidents involving trucks are more likely to result in serious injuries and deaths than car accidents. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations are designed to protect motorists who have to share the roads with tractor-trailer rigs. To prevent driver fatigue, truckers can’t drive for more than 10 hours in a 24-hour period. Safety regulations also deal with the proper loading of materials and safety rules when passing other vehicles and on traveling speeds. Truckers are required to keep logs of their driving time and trucking companies are required to keep maintenance records. Most modern trucks also have GPS devices that show, down to the minute, how fast the driver was going and how quickly they came to a stop. By comparing the GPS records with the driver’s logbook, we can find discrepancies between driver logbooks and GPS records. We look forward to demonstrating our skill, integrity, and compassion should you ever need legal advice about a car accident claim. The sooner you call us, the sooner our truck wreck lawyers and investigators can go to work on your behalf.
