Thousands of people die every year in the United States from preventable semi truck accidents. Federal regulations regarding semi trucks have been developed over the years in an attempt to protect the general public. These regulations include limiting the amount of hours a semi truck driver is allowed to drive, mandating regular truck inspections, requiring certain semi truck specific safety features, and much more. Unfortunately, these semi truck safety regulations are frequently ignored. In a vast majority of semi truck accidents, the wreck could have been prevented if the driver and/or the company would have followed mandatory safety regulations. When a semi truck accident occurs, it's imperative to identify any possible safety regulations that were violated prior to filing a lawsuit.
