Trucking Regulations & Driver Negligence

Due to the high demand for merchandise to be transported, there are many vehicles in operation that travel across the nation on a regular basis. 18 wheelers are common inhabitants of various roadways throughout America, and are bound by the same rules and regulations of the road as other drivers. In addition, they are held to higher standards by the companies that employ these drivers. For example, a truck driver is only allowed to driver for a specified number of hours at a time before they are required to take time off to sleep and rejuvenate.

A fully loaded semi-truck can weigh up to 80,000 pounds and stretch over 75 feet in length, any smaller vehicle that is involved in a collision with these vehicles could suffer severe damage. Truck drivers are held to a high standard and have various laws that they must follow regarding the amount of time they can operate their vehicle and records that they must keep among others. When an accident occurs with these large vehicles the results can be catastrophic and even deadly. Contact a Tampa Truck Accident Lawyer from Boohoff Law to help you with your case.

Common Causes of Trucking Accidents

There are many different kinds of accident; here are three more common kinds of truck accidents:

  • Underride accidents
  • Rollovers
  • Jackknife accidents

On the back of every trailer there is a guard bar to keep smaller vehicles from traveling beneath the trailer. An underride accident occurs when this bar fails. The results of this can be very serious as the car will generally travel beneath the trailer and the bottom will scrape the hood all the way back past the driver’s seat. A rollover accident can occur when a driver puts on his brakes and the trailer begins to slide around the side of the cab. If the wheels catch it will trip the trailer and result in a rollover accident. A jackknife accident begins in a very similar way. The diver puts on their brakes and the cab stops while the trailer does not. It will slide around the side of the cab until it is facing the opposite direction, pinning the cab in an unmovable position.
