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.
