Truck Accidents in El Paso Deserve the Best Legal Counsel
Traffic accidents are at least inconvenient and at worst devastating. When the accident involves both a commercial truck and a passenger vehicle, those in the passenger vehicles often experience very serious injuries. For this reason, truck accidents should be treated much differently than other road accidents.
The trucking industry is heavily regulated by the federal government as well as state laws. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) governs interstate trucking with various safety requirements, and state Departments of Transportation have additional rules and regulations. 18-wheeler drivers must pass an extensive number of requirements and screenings to be allowed to drive these vehicles. These regulations limit the amount of time a driver can spend behind the wheel and ensure that drivers are held accountable for anything that happens while they are on the road.
You Deserve Justice
Victims of truck accidents often face much more hardship than physical injuries. Victims often find themselves unable to work, and the unforeseen medical bills are usually hefty. It’s imperative to seek the assistance of an experienced El Paso attorney who is well-versed in FMCSA regulations as soon as possible if you or someone you know has been injured in this kind of accident. In fact, because truck driver logs are only required to be kept for a certain period of time, timing is extremely important in these cases.
