Truck Accidents New Jersey Lawyers
In order to keep all drivers and passengers safe, the trucking industry is heavily regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). While most trucking companies, and the drivers they employ, follow FMCSA rules, there are some who ignore Federal regulations in order to increase profit margins. Some hazardous factors restricted by Federal Regulation which may increase the risk of an accident include:
• Speeding (especially in certain road conditions)
• Overloading trailers or unsecured loads
• Skipping drive rest breaks or driving more hours in a shift than permitted by law (driver fatigue)
• Distracted drivers
• Alcohol and drugs
• Victims of truck accidents
When truckers drive unsafely, then other drivers and their passengers are at great risk for bodily harm with sometimes fatal results. It goes without saying that in a collision with an automobile, the truck always wins. The weight, size and bulk of a truck always make it a deadly force to other drivers who fall victim to truck driver negligence.
