Holding Those Who Violate Trucking Regulations Accountable
The U.S. Department of Transportation regulates the commercial trucking industry through the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), and covers the topics of driver, company and vehicle regulations. Texas state law also provides its own rules and regulations. Combined, these regulations can be incredibly complex, which is why it is important to hire an attorney who has experience pursuing 18-wheeler accident claims against truck drivers and trucking companies.
At my Spring-area law firm, the Law Office Of Gregory P. Lee PLLC, I have spent much of my legal career representing individuals injured in car and truck collisions. I am knowledgeable of both federal and Texas 18-wheeler regulations. I know what your claim should include and how to best craft your claim when seeking maximum compensation for your injuries.
My offices are located west of Kingwood. Contact me today to schedule your free consultation. There is no obligation to hire me when you come to see me. We will sit and discuss your situation. Then you will be given time to decide how, or if, you would like to proceed.
Investigating Whether The Truck Driver Followed All Regulations
Drivers are highly regulated within the trucking industry. From the number of hours they can drive within any given period to the manner in which they log their receipts and pay for transportation charges, commercial vehicle drivers must ensure they are meeting all state and federal standards. As your lawyer, I will thoroughly investigate a driver’s actions or inaction to determine if any of the following contributed to your accident:
Other Common Regulation Violations Can Help Support Your Injury Claim
The truck driver may not be the only cause of your accident. Other causes of an 18-wheeler accident can involve vehicle regulation violations, including being overweight or not having proper maintenance, or they can stem from trucking company regulation violations, such as negligent hiring.
My staff and I will work diligently to ensure all potential causes are investigated. I know what violations to look for and how those violations may or may not support your personal injury claim.
