In a truck accident, who is at fault?
drivers are bound to negligence laws and drivers who drive break the
rules or are unsafe are negligent. In addition to laws that all drivers
must follow, truckers and their companies must also adhere to the
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations which include the following:
• Driver qualifications
• Vehicle inspection and maintenance
• Limitations on drivers' working hours
• Drug and Alcohol testing
Truck drivers are required to keep driving logs and
maintenance records for their truck. These reports can be a crucial
element in determining negligence in an accident.
Fighting on your behalf
companies involved in interstate commerce are required by federal law
to maintain liability insurance. Since the truck driver, the trucking
company, and the insurance company bear the financial responsibility for
injuries and damages the driver may cause, these insurance policies can
exceed over a million dollars.
