Federal Truck Safety Regulations Demand Safety but are Routinely Ignored
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is charged with making truck safety a priority on the roads. The FMCSA issues regulations regarding the licensing of truckers and how long they can be behind the wheel between rest breaks, as well as demanding routine vehicle inspections and maintenance, and limiting how much cargo can be loaded on a trailer and other important aspects of truck safety. Sadly, these regulations are so often ignored that during annual roadside inspections, thousands of trucks are immediately pulled from service due to issues with the truck drivers and their rigs. Some of the most common failures of truckers and trucking companies that lead to serious truck accidents include:
Negligence of Truck Drivers
- Distracted Driving
- Driving while Fatigued
- Falling Asleep at the Wheel
- Driving under the Influence of Drugs and Stimulants
Negligence of Trucking Companies
- Out-of-Adjustment Brakes
- Bad or Missing Brake Components
- Worn-out Tires
- Unbalanced Loads
- Overloaded Trailers
- Non-Working Signals
At the Rinaldo Law Group, our Riverview truck accident attorneys know how to build a strong case that proves the negligence on the part of truckers and trucking companies, including reviewing logs and records for safety violations and uncovering when those logs have been intentionally falsified to evade responsibility for complying with the law. We do everything we can to help truck accident victims get the care and compensation they need to deal with their serious injuries.
