Trucking accidents can be devastating. Just the sheer size of the vehicle make them a hazard. You should be aware that all trucking companies must comply with the Federal motor carrier safety regulations.|
What most people need to understand is that the driver of the vehicle imputes liability to the carrier. This could involve equipment violations and/or maintenance records and logs. These need to be inspected by your attorney in order to determine the nature and cause of the accident.
