The Causes of Truck Accidents
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is responsible for issuing and enforcing safety regulations for the operation of 18-wheelers (semi trucks, big rigs) and other commercial trucks. The regulations set forth by the FMCSA cover nearly all aspects of the maintenance and operation of trucks.
When handling an 18-wheeler accident case, the Finz firm lawyers search for evidence that the driver or trucking company was in violation of trucking regulations. Trucking violations include:
- Driving without taking adequate rest breaks (driver fatigue)
- Driving with an overloaded or unsecured load
- Improper truck maintenance
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Falsifying trucking logs
Truck Accident Injuries
Because of the speed and mass of semi trucks, the injuries sustained in truck accidents are often catastrophic and even fatal. As experienced personal injury lawyers, the Finz firm attorneys are adept at assessing the full extent of damage an injury has caused. They will apply their skill and experience in truck accident law to help you pursue full and fair compensation for the losses you have suffered.
