Feds Launch Outreach Program to Educate Public About Sharing the Road with Commercial Motor Vehicles

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has launched an outreach program to educate the public about driving safely around large commercial motor vehicles (CMVs).

What Causes a Jackknife Truck Accident?

How many traffic reports do we hear about a California thoroughfare being blocked by a jackknifed truck? A jackknife truck accident often results in massive damage to property, serious injuries and, too often, fatalities. How do these accident occur and is the truck driver always at fault?

Large Truck Crashes are Common but also Preventable

The results from truck accidents are far more devastating on average than other motor vehicle accidents. In the U.S. one person is killed or injured in a truck crash every 16 minutes. 98% of the fatalities are occupants in the smaller vehicles, as opposed to those riding in the trucks. Despite these numbers truck drivers, on the average, are patient and safe drivers.

How Do FMCSR Violations Impact a California Truck Crash Lawsuit?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) can have an appreciable impact in a California truck crash case, involving injuries or fatalities, in regards to recovering damages. All commercial vehicles, weighing more than 10.000 lbs. or used to transport hazardous materials, and are used for interstate commerce are bound by the FMCSR.
