Common Causes for Big Rig Trucking Accidents
18-wheelers are massive and are thus subject to more restrictions than the average driver. The rules of the road for these truck drivers are established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration or FMCSA. According to these regulations, truck drivers need to keep detailed logs, have their trucks weighed regularly, and can only spend a limited time behind the wheel. Unfortunately, in an attempt to meet stringent deadlines, many drivers break the rules.
When the regulations are broken, accidents and injury can result.
Common Injuries Resulting from Truck Accidents
A truck slamming into your vehicle or person can cause serious injuries, many of which require immediate and continuous medical attention.
