The Dangers of 18 Wheelers

Truck drivers often face long work hours and drive under high amounts of fatigue on short deadlines. Every year, negligent truck drivers often make fatal mistakes. In the United States, hundreds of people are killed in 18 Wheeler related accidents. Commercial 18 Wheeler trucks are incredibly dangerous because of their enormous size and weight. If you or a loved one was injured or killed in a large-truck related crash, you may be facing uncertainty. High medical bills from back, neck or head injuries can pile on top of repairs you may need to make to your own vehicle, making it difficult for many to make ends meet post-accident. An experienced lawyer can help fight the injuries you have sustained from the crash.

Trucking Laws

Truck laws are regulated under federal and state governments and outline everything from safety of parts and accessories to the number of hours of service a driver is allowed to put in during the course of a day. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) was implemented to help prevent fatal accidents and injuries in large-truck related accidents. FMCSA also enforce safety regulations and works on improving safety information systems for commercial motor vehicles. The different state and federal laws are put into place to help protect commercial truckers and the drivers who share the road with them. Unfortunately, failure to comply by safety regulations often results in injuries or deaths of innocent drivers.

Compensation After an Accident

If you or someone you care about has been involved in an accident with an 18 Wheeler truck, you are eligible for compensation to cover your bills and losses. Truck-related accidents are often dramatic because of the size and weight of the trucks and victims are often severely injured or killed. An experienced personal injury attorney can help bring justice to the negligent drivers or truck companies. There are a number of different people who could be at fault. The truck's driver, owners or leasers could be held responsible for your injuries.
