Hurt by a Negligent Truck Driver?
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) Govern Truck Drivers
Commercial truck drivers bear a tremendous amount of responsibility when they are on the road. Tractor-trailers are dangerous vehicles compared to most passenger vehicles on the road. Their size and weight make them difficult to handle. These drivers have a responsibility to follow the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.
At The Law Offices of Aaron Allison, we are committed to honest and competent legal representation. As part of this commitment, we only take cases that are legitimate and have a chance of recovering compensation for the victim. Since 1978, we have protected the rights of injured people in Austin.
Injuries Due to Trucker Negligence in Austin, Texas
There are state and federal regulations, including the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, that govern a truck driver’s conduct and operation while working. When a truck driver fails to observe those regulations, they put everyone else on the road at risk of serious harm. Some of the more common ways in which a truck driver may be negligently operating his or her truck include:
- Driving longer than allowed or while fatigued
- Ignoring traffic regulations
- Driving an overloaded vehicle
- Driving while intoxicated
- Neglecting to perform necessary maintenance
When an accident occurs involving a truck driver, you need to take immediate action to ensure that crucial evidence is preserved. Having a skilled attorney on your side can help ensure that you have the evidence needed to build a strong case.
