Whether they involve drunk driving or hit-and-run incidents, uninsured or underinsured drivers, rollovers, tractor-trailer collisions, or fatigued or inattentive driving, truck accidents often lead to injuries to people and damage to property.
The commercial trucking industry is heavily regulated by both the federal government and state governments. Commercial truck drivers are supposed to follow a variety of rules related to the number of hours they can drive before resting, the inspections that they must conduct before driving, the upkeep of their vehicles’ breaks, the securing of the loads they carry, and more. If a commercial truck driver violates any safety rule and the violation results in injury to someone else, the driver is likely to be held responsible for the harm that resulted from his negligence; in many situations, the driver’s employer would likely be considered liable as well.
