18-Wheeler Collisions & Deaths

About Trucking Regulation Violations

Truck accidents are some of the most devastating traffic collisions in which a person can be involved. When loaded to capacity according to federal trucking regulations, commercial trucks can weigh as much as 40 tons, or 80,000 pounds. These same federal regulations provide guidelines for the training of truck drivers, as well as for the equipment and operation of commercial trucks. Violation of these trucking regulations can result in a serious accident.

"Accidents" only occur when truck drivers break basic traffic laws like talking on their cell-phone or driving while intoxicated. If the truck driver or their insurance agency does not accept responsibility for the injuries and damages that they have caused, a trial becomes necessary to force them to make reparations.
