Federal Trucking Regulations
Due to the size and nature of commercial trucks, federal regulations are in place to help protect motorists and reduce the likelihood of otherwise preventable truck accidents. When these regulations are violated for any reason, you are put at risk.

All commercial trucks engaged in interstate traffic are governed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. These federal trucking regulations require motor carriers to meet specific operational and safety standards for issues related to:
- The inspection, surveillance and maintenance of trucks
- Commercial truck licensing for drivers, including background checks and medical assessments
- Hours of service with respect to maximum operational limitations and minimum off-duty requirements, as well as the documentation of both
- Drug and alcohol testing procedures
Unfortunately, despite the many regulations being enforced, truck accidents still happen. Because of the complicated nature of truck accident claims and the complex legal requirements involved in establishing liability, it’s important to make sure you have an experienced truck accident attorney to represent your rights.
Truck accident claims can be incredibly complicated for a multitude of reasons. Establishing liability and proving fault requires extensive investigative measures and can be a lengthy process due to the number of potentially responsible parties, whether individual drivers, manufacturers or otherwise.
Additionally, it is not uncommon for insurance companies to attempt to diminish the value of your claim to pay you less compensation than you might actually be entitled to receive.
