Injured in a Truck Accident? Mills Law Firm Can Help
The US has Over Half a Million Truck Accidents Per Year
Semi-trucks are heavy users of our nation’s roads and highways. This trucking traffic is, for the most part, a safe and effective means of transporting goods. However, 18-wheelers pose very specific risks to other drivers and have caused some of the worst accidents on our roads today.
Due to the sheer size and weight of trucks, the speed at which they travel, and their blind spots, negligent and reckless driving by truckers presents an especially dangerous hazard to other motorists on the highways and interstate. Approximately half a million trucking accidents occur each year in the United States and many of these crashes end in fatalities.
Numerous federal regulations govern truck drivers and trucking companies.
Truck drivers and trucking companies are required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and each state’s driving laws to follow the rules of the road. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) are federal safety regulations that govern all interstate trucking operations, and these safety regulations are often critical in determining whether a semi-truck driver or company has violated its duty to the other motorists on the road and the public.
