Truck Accidents Caused by a Truck Driver or Company

Truck drivers and trucking companies are regulated both by state entities as well as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). These regulations include stipulations on how many hours a truck driver can operate and how often trucks have to be inspected and maintained. Unfortunately, the actions of truck drivers and trucking companies can still lead to a vehicle accident. This can include a driver:

  • Operating beyond the allowable hours of service
  • Operating while impaired by alcohol or drugs
  • Operating while distracted by a phone or another device in the vehicle
  • Tailgating other drivers on the roadway
  • Failing to abide by traffic laws, including a failure to yield, speeding, failing to use turn signals, etc.

Trucking companies can also be held responsible for vehicle accidents, particularly if they fail to adequately background check drivers or train them before allowing them to operate on the roadway. Additionally, if a trucking company fails to regularly inspect and maintain their vehicles, and vehicle failure turns out to be the cause of an accident, the company could be held liable for the incident.
