Truck accident law and what you need to know
Your skilled truck accident attorney will understand industry laws and how to use them to your advantage
Whether you are dealing with a car crash or a semi-truck collision, accident law can be difficult to navigate if you don’t have the right tools.
Our truck accident lawyers have the necessary skills and experience to properly interpret trucking laws to build a viable injury lawsuit for you. Explore the topics below to get a better understanding of truck accident law.
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs)
Trucking industry laws are contained in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). These regulations are complex. However, our experienced truck accident attorneys can help you understand the nuances of these regulations and use their accumulated accident law knowledge to create a strong lawsuit.
Regulations of a self-regulating industry
It may seem odd, but the trucking industry is in charge of policing itself. You need an attorney who is familiar with the FMCSRs, the interpretations of these regulations and the best ways to protect your rights after an accident. Being self regulated, the trucking industry’s rules may seem confusing to an outsider. Our truck accident lawyers have extensive experience dealing with this industry.
