Many trucking accidents are the result of negligence or recklessness. Drivers may be placed under unreasonable deadlines, leading to accidents or are just simple careless and reckless individuals. Also, trucking companies don’t always adequately train their drivers. If you have been injured in a trucking accident, you must hold those responsible for your injuries accountable.
Because of the large risk, commercial trucks pose in the event of an accident, truckers and the company they work for are heavily regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The FMCSA has many regulations that aim to help protect other motorists on the road. One of these regulations is called the hours of service regulations, which outlines when truckers are allowed to be on the road and when they must rest. Since tired drivers are dangerous drivers, these regulations aim to prevent as many accidents as possible by ensuring that truckers are well-rested. According to the hours of service regulation:
All too often truckers or their companies are caught breaking these rules, putting others at risk. In rarer circumstances, the hours of service regulations can be modified in times of national emergencies, such as in the recent COVID-19 crisis. This is done to help get supplies to locations faster.
