Commercial truck companies must follow strict guidelines set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). As attorneys with years of experience handling truck accident cases, we can tell you that these regulations are not always followed by trucking companies. In some cases, companies are more concerned with making profits than ensuring public safety. Trucking company negligence is a primary cause of truck accidents. Examples of negligence may include:
Our truck accident attorneys have seen every trick in the book. Some companies skirt federal rules to make more money. Unfortunately, it is our friends, family members and neighbors who could end up paying the price for these selfish actions. Negligent trucking companies can also be held responsible for damages caused to other motorists.
If you or loved ones were harmed in a truck accident, then it is important to act quickly by hiring an attorney. Companies may try to eliminate evidence of their negligence, such as by tampering with a vehicles electronic control module. This device may record speed, driving time and other information on a semi-truck.
If you believe a trucking company is responsible for your injuries or loss, then please call Mike Love & Associates, LLC to discuss possible legal options.
