Accidents involving large trucks are among the most serious and most deadly in the United States. Our Clearwater Truck Accident Injury Attorneys recognize that handling these cases requires a thorough understanding of commercial vehicle regulations on both the federal and state level.
Truck Driver fatigue is a common problem, as hours of service regulations are routinely violated. Careful examination of records after an accident often shows serious and even fraudulent violations of state and federal safety regulations. Florida attempts to deal with this by imposing strict rules on the number of hours a driver can be at the wheel of a large truck. Generally, any person who operates a commercial motor vehicle solely in intrastate commerce not transporting any hazardous material may not be on duty more than 72 hours in any period of 7 consecutive days. Despite this rule, careful examination of records after an accident often shows serious and even fraudulent violations of those safety regulations. However, trucking companies are only required to maintain many of those records for six months. Without obtaining those records before they are destroyed, the injured person or survivors of a person killed in a truck wreck have a much more difficult time proving the trucking company's negligence. .
