Dallas Truck Driver Negligence
One of the most terrifying experiences that any a driver can experience is an auto accident with a truck driver. A significant number of these accidents result in the driver being severely injured or killed. Unfortunately, these types of collisions have become common on our roads and interstates today. It is also commonly believed that truck driver accidents result in a proportionally larger number of wrongful deaths and severe injuries.
There are countless federal and state laws, as well as regulations issued by trucking companies themselves, that clearly spell out in great detail the responsibilities of truckers on our roads. Some of the laws and regulations for truckers issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration include drug and alcohol testing requirements, registration and insuring of trucks, records including hour logs, training, and adherence to hours of service. If these laws and regulations are not followed then truck drivers are considered to be negligent and are endangering other drivers on the roads.
The attorneys at Carabin Shaw are highly experienced in handling claims where the Texas Department of Transportation and federal Department of Transportation laws and regulations were not followed.
