The unique requirements associated with operating an 18-wheeler or other commercial truck place an additional responsibility on the driver. Certain precautions must be taken prior to taking the truck out on the road and during operation to ensure the safety of other motorists. In addition, drivers are bound by Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations that govern such issues as hours of service vs. hours of sleep and carrying hazardous materials.
Any failure by a truck driver to take the necessary safety precautions or abide by regulations can create a dangerous situation that can result in serious and often fatal accidents. If you or someone you love has been injured in an accident with a commercial truck of any kind, it is important that you seek the advice of a qualified Lancaster attorney.
