There are certain situations in which an accident is inevitable, however, there are also plenty of accidents that occur that could have easily been avoided. If you were in an accident with a semi truck and you believe it could have been avoided, it’s time to talk to an attorney about what happened.
Safety Regulations for Commercial Drivers
There are many different safety qualifications that must be followed by truck drivers that are set in place by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. One of the first things all truck drivers are supposed to undergo is a drug and alcohol screening before they are ever allowed on the road. These sorts of tests can also be given randomly and intermittently over the course of the driver’s career. Unfortunately, not everyone behind the wheel of a semi truck is qualified to do so and because of this, accidents occur.
