When Truck Drivers Violate Regulations
Trucking companies and drivers must follow strict regulatory mandates from state and federal agencies. Many regulations are federal and include requirements for:
- Commercial vehicle licensing
- Hiring practices
- Insurance coverage
- Vehicle tracking
- Vehicle safety and maintenance
- Medical standards for drivers
- Driving and hours of service
Truck drivers have strict limits on how many consecutive and total hours they can drive after being off-duty. Specific regulations that must be followed depend on the type of truck, type of cargo, weather conditions and other factors. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) regulate commercial vehicle safety in New York.
Our team investigates several possible trucking company and truck driver regulation violations in all truck accident cases we handle, and we do so comprehensively on behalf of each of our clients.
