Pursuing Compensation After A Truck Accident
An accident with an 18-wheeler or another commercial truck is unlike any type of car crash. Besides the size of these vehicles, trucks differ from passenger cars in that they are governed by a host of additional state and federal trucking regulations. If you suffered an injury in a trucking accident, contact a Dallas experienced trial attorney at the The Law Offices of Jason January, P.C., in Dallas, Texas.
Our Dallas truck accident law firm advocates for the rights of people injured by the negligence of a truck driver and trucking company. It is important to hire a lawyer who understands not only personal injury laws, but also the laws specific to the trucking industry. We will advocate for your rights to get not only money to compensate you for your losses, but also punitive damages when available, that will send a deterrent message to wrongdoing trucking companies.
Did The Driver And Trucking Company Violate Regulations?
Companies of the trucking industry and semi-truck drivers face a list of additional regulations in attempts to prevent trucking accidents. Through a variety of state agencies, the Department of Transportation and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, regulations are imposed on people who engage in interstate trucking commerce that require their adherence to strict safety and employment regulations related to:
- Medical and background checks
- Maintenance and safety inspections
- Driver rest periods
- Undocumented workers and illegal immigrants
- Substance and alcohol issues
