CourtLaw’s Newark Truck Accident Injury Lawyers Know What to Do When You’ve Been Involved in a Commercial Truck Accident
Large trucks are responsible for over 5,000 fatalities and 100,000 injuries yearly, on average. Statistics indicate that 42% of those accidents are caused by truck operator error or company negligence.
Commercial truck accidents are caused by a variety of circumstances and conditions, such as driver error, driver fatigue, defective vehicle maintenance, traffic law violations, alcohol and drug impairment, unfamiliarity with roadways, and other preventable circumstances and conditions. When accidents are the fault of commercial trucking companies or their drivers, those individuals and entities should be held accountable.
What Happens When a Driver or Trucking Company Doesn’t Comply with Federal Safety Regulations?
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has created regulations and laws that govern safety procedures to promote public safety. When those regulations aren’t followed, the likelihood of a catastrophic accident on a road or highway in New Jersey becomes significantly higher.
A trucking company that fails to comply with these regulations and laws can be held legally and financially responsible for accidents that occur as a result. In some cases, both the driver and the trucking company may also be criminally prosecuted.
