Trucking accidents can cause some of the most catastrophic injuries or even death as a result of negligent operation. Considering the truck can weigh more than 80,000 pounds and measure up to 75 feet in length, it is not uncommon for these accidents to result in the most serious of injuries or fatalities. Trucking accidents are different from car accidents in that trucks have very specific rules for safe operation and maintenance, including time restrictions for the length of time an operator may continuously drive. Drivers of trucks are required to log pre-trip and post trip inspections as well as the amount of time they spend driving and resting. Failure to properly record these items or violations of the time restrictions violate Federal Department of Transportation regulations. These violations result in poorly maintained equipment or drivers that are too tired to safely operate the trucks. These failures result in accidents and serious injuries for which you can seek recovery.
