Tractor-Trailer Accidents in Wildomar
In 2000, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations were established by the federal government to help oversee the tractor-trailer industry and to increase the safety of commercial vehicles throughout America. Sadly, many truckers and the companies that employ them routinely disregard this set of safety rules in favor of cutting corners and preserving the company’s bottom line.
Refusing to follow these safety regulations is only going to result in an uptick in the country’s overall number of disastrous and fatal tractor-trailer accidents.
Ensuring that the drivers they employ have the appropriate instruction and certifications is something that trucking companies are required to do. In the event that the trucking company neglects to correctly verify that a trucker meets all of the federal qualifications and that trucker then causes a collision, both the truck driver and the trucking company will most likely be found at fault.
