Commercial transportation vehicles have their own laws and regulations. If you’re involved in an accident with a truck or other commercial vehicle, you want to make sure you’re represented by personal injury attorneys who know their way around the complicated regulatory environment of commercial vehicles.
Because of the larger size and weight of these vehicles, truck accidents occur more frequently and are more likely to result in death or serious injury. Truck accidents can be made worse by several aggravating factors, including insufficient driver training, overloaded cargos, insufficient maintenance, and driver negligence.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), which regulates commercial vehicles, found that in 87 percent of large truck crashes, the truck driver was at fault. Driver errors include fatigue (falling asleep at the wheel), driving too fast, driving while impaired with prescription or non-prescription medication, and driving while distracted.
