Trucking Regulations

Trucking Regulations

In response to truck safety concerns, the Federal and State governments have put in place Motor Carrier Safety (MCS) regulations. These truck regulations require commercial trucking companies to meet basic standards for vehicle maintenance, truck drive times, and other factors which can seriously affect the likelihood of truck accidents. They also require testing of truck drivers for alcohol and drug use. Unfortunately, these Federal and State regulations are routinely ignored. As a result, thousands of fatal truck accidents occur every year on the web of highways connecting states and major cities across the United States.

What are trucking regulations?

Commercial trucking regulations were written to protect the safety of all who use the nation's highways by preventing avoidable accidents. A company that operates commercial trucks creates records to back up its compliance with the regulations. These records often provide the evidence that a truck accident lawyer needs to prove a case. Whether a truck accident was caused by truck driver or trucking company negligence, a truck maintenance provider, or another responsible party, documentation of compliance with trucking regulations can help truck accident lawyers discover the facts of the case.

When representing you in a serious injury or wrongful death claim following a truck accident with an 18-wheeler or other large commercial truck, our truck accident lawyers double as detectives. Working with industry experts, we at Gene Toscano uncover what really happened to cause the accident. You can trust that the personal injury lawyer that you work with will look at truck driver logs, company records, and other safety reports filed with regulatory agencies. We will look for evidence of drug or alcohol abuse by the truck driver, as well as inconsistencies which could be a sign that documents have been falsified or completed after the fact. Our goal is to build a strong and persuasive case as quickly as possible.
