Federal Truck Laws
Accidents involving commercial trucks including tractor trailers and semi trucks leave so much devastation in their wake that the Federal Government established the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration ("FMCSA") to pass laws and regulations aimed at reducing the number of truck crashes on our roads. The FMCSA established the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (Title 49, Parts 350 - 399) which regulate all trucks engaged in interstate commerce. Our experienced truck accident lawyers know how to use these regulations to establish the negligence of the trucking company and the truck driver.
