Federal Trucking Regulations and Truck Accidents in Alabama

Were you involved in a truck accident?

When someone chooses to get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, they are supposed to make the best effort to drive safely in order to avoid an accident. This is true for all drivers, but in the case of commercial truck drivers, safe driving is even more of a concern. Despite this fact, some truck drivers are negligent when driving.

While such an accident can be devastating and it may take you a while to recover, there may be a light at the end of the tunnel. Our law firm, Morris, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers, LLC, is highly experienced in handling the legal matters that come about as the result of truck accidents. We understand all federal trucking regulations, and we can assess your case with a fine-tooth comb to determine what type of compensation you are entitled to.

As commercial trucks are so large, the damages and bodily injuries that result are often much more than those that occur when normal-sized vehicles collide. Federal regulations exist to provide stronger guidelines in order to better protect both truck drivers and vehicle drivers. These regulations define the standards of safety expected, weight limits per axle, rules for how long a truck driver can drive without breaks, how many total hours a day a truck driver can drive, and more.
