Trucking: A Regulated Industry
Accidents involving commercial trucks are some of the most devastating
on our roads. As vehicles that can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds, 18-wheelers,
and other commercial carriers are more susceptible to being involved in
collisions. When trucking companies or truck drivers are negligent or
careless in maintaining or operating their vehicles, the risks for accidents
and serious injuries only increases.
The commercial trucking industry is tightly regulated to ensure public
safety. When trucking companies or drivers violate laws or regulations,
they substantially increase risks for accidents and injuries. Violations
can also be highlighted to hold negligent companies and drivers accountable
for victims’ losses. Whatever the underlying cause of your accident
may be, our Tampa personal injury lawyers work toward fully investigating
collisions, determining fault and liability, and fighting for the compensation
our clients deserve.
Common violations our Tampa truck accident attorney team looks for during
these cases include:
- Exceeding weight and cargo restrictions or improperly loading cargo
- Negligent maintenance and upkeep of vehicles
- Improper inspection of vehicles, cargo, or driver conduct
- Hours-of-Service violations involving overworked or tired drivers
- Drug or alcohol use by drivers
- Driver negligence
