Laws a Truck Driver must follow:

The laws for truck driver conduct are set by both state laws and federal laws. The following of these regulations could affect the parties who are responsible for your injuries. Some of the regulations trucks must follow include:

  • CDL Requirement
  • Driver Rest
  • Maximum Weight Permitted
  • Quality Control of Trucks
  • Hazardous Waste Restrictions

Violating these rules could affect liability and our San Antonio Trucking Lawyers are ready to find out. To win a case, you must prove that the driver and their employer are responsible for your injuries. The breaking of the rules may automatically prove negligence. This is not the only way to prove liability as there may be other methods depending on your case.
