At Carlson & Dumeer, LLC, we represent individuals who have been injured in trucking accidents at the hands of negligent truck drivers.
Why choose Carlson & Dumeer, LLC?
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates the trucking industry and enforces federal trucking laws and regulations. One such regulation is the hours of service regulation, which was designed to improve the safety of the motoring public by reducing truck driver fatigue.
The FMCSA's hours of service rule:
Historically, truck drivers have a dangerous habit of logging too many hours on the road and habitually driving fatigued, which can be compared to driving while drunk. In many cases, such drivers were under pressure from their employers to drive for hours on end to increase profits and shorten delivery time.
Due to this widespread problem, trucking companies and drivers who commit egregious violations to this rule face harsh fines, which are strictly imposed by the FMCSA.
If you believe you were injured by a fatigued truck driver, or an otherwise negligent truck driver, you can turn to the Hartford personal injury attorneys at Carlson & Dumeer, LLC for help.
