Questions About Truck Accidents

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates trucking companies, establishing rules for how many consecutive hours a trucker can drive, how heavy a load can be, and other factors. The goal of these regulations is to decrease the number and severity of truck accidents.

How many hours is a truck driver permitted to be on the road at any one time?

The FMCSA allows truckers to drive for 11 consecutive hours with a minimum of 10 hours of downtime afterward. This requirement is designed to ensure that truckers get adequate rest to help avoid accidents caused by fatigue and sleep deprivation.

If a trucker takes time to rest, won’t he just speed to make up the time later, increasing the odds of an accident?

Trucking companies are not allowed to impose an unrealistic schedule on a driver. Trucking companies have a responsibility to ensure that a load is safely delivered in a timely fashion, but they must also take into account the distance and possible delays the driver will face. If a company places unrealistic demands on a truck driver and an accident occurs as a result, the company can be held responsible for damages.

Who is responsible for a truck accident?

Because so many different companies and contractors can be involved in a truck delivery, the responsible parties in truck accidents can vary. In many instances, a trucking company that has imposed an unrealistic schedule on a trucker is to blame. Truckers themselves can be at fault because of distracted or reckless driving. If the truck was overloaded, or if the freight was not properly secured, the company that loaded the truck might also be liable for damages.
