Foley Alabama Semi-Truck Accident Attorney

Certain truck driving techniques and driver conduct are regulated across the industry. These matters include: driver qualifications, driver training, countermeasures taught to handle various traffic conditions, safety management, and defensive driving.

Regulations for trucks include rules and guidelines issued by the Office of Motor Carriers within the United States Department of Transportation and regulations issued by the Alabama Department of Motor Vehicle Safety.

Regulated areas include general inspection, brake performance, wheel retention and deterioration, tire inflation, tire wear and deterioration, steering system performance, trailer coupling, vehicle lighting, and pay load and cargo characteristics.

Trucking companies should properly train and supervise drivers, monitor driver logs, address complaints made against drivers, maintain reasonable delivery schedules, properly load trucks, and guard against driver fatigue. Unfortunately, many companies do not do this, with tragic results.

Truck accidents often occur not only as a matter of driver or company error, but due to driver fatigue and use of stimulants or alcohol. Knowing the exact causation of an accident is critical to your case.

The knowledge and commitment to properly investigate the cause of a truck accident often means the difference between winning and losing. Prompt action must be taken to investigate before valuable information is lost and to properly identify the at-fault parties, insurance companies, and causation issues involved in your accident.
