Truckers and trucking companies are required to follow federal and state trucking regulations. These rules are designed to keep other drivers, as well as the truckers, safe. Failure to comply with federal and state trucking laws can result in serious injuries and fatalities. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, it is wise to choose a law firm with ample knowledge of trucking laws. When your lawyer has knowledge of these laws, the cause of the accident can be readily identified.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents
Our Dallas law firm has been practicing personal injury law for many years. We have significant knowledge of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) and apply this knowledge to the investigation of your claim. Through our extensive work, we will discover the cause of the truck accident. Often, truck accidents are caused by the following:
- Driver fatigue / driving over hours
- Falsifying actual hours of service
- Inadequate driver training
- Inadequately supervised truck drivers
- Excessive speed
- Driver under influence of drugs or alcohol
- Improper truck maintenance
- Overloaded truck / improperly loaded truck
- Other types of negligence and noncompliance with truck laws

As we pursue fair compensation on your behalf – through negotiation, mediation or litigation – we consider all of the elements involved in your recovery. We demand compensation that allows you to adjust to your new circumstances. We never back down against the trucking companies or their insurance companies.
