Truck Driving Regulations and Liability
Truck drivers are required by law to adhere to a set of strict guidelines regarding their driving. They must:
- Properly maintain their vehicles
- Adhere to established loading and unloading procedures
- Maintain safe weights
- Keep accurate records of the hours they have logged behind the wheel
When an accident occurs because truck drivers fail to rigorously follow these rules, the trucking company and/or driver may be held legally responsible for the accident and any damages that result from it.
