Truck Accidents

Being involved in a truck collision differs from many other accidents as there is an interaction between state and federal laws and regulations. Recently, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) amended safety regulations for commercial carriers. These regulations mandate that trucking carriers track and report safety issues, including safety violations, to identify high-risk commercial truck carriers. However, federal regulations mandate that certain pertinent information shall only be retained by the carrier for six months after an accident.

You Need To Act Quickly And Preserve Evidence

Truck companies aggressively and promptly respond to accident scenes to gather important information, while most accident victims will still be recuperating from their injuries. Carriers often have a team of experts and investigators who are sent to the scene to gather evidence and try to minimize liability.
