Who regulates the trucking industry?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that in 2012, 104,000 people were injured in truck accidents, and nearly 4,000 people were killed. Semi-trucks are massive and they pose a real threat to motorists nationwide.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) was established within the Department of Transportation in 2000 with the primary mission of preventing commercial vehicle-related injuries and fatalities.

The FMCSA is the government agency that enforces safety regulations and targets high-risk trucking companies and drivers. The agency has established various federal regulations which truck drivers are required to adhere to in order to maintain the safest driving practices in the truck industry.

Some of these regulations address:

  • Driving while fatigued
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Hazardous materials
  • Cargo securement

In many accident cases, a truck driver violates one of the federal trucking regulations and causes a catastrophic accident; for example, a truck driver violates the hours of service rule (HOS), which limits the maximum hours a truck driver can drive in a day and in a workweek.

If a trucker falls asleep at the wheel, it can spell disaster for other motorists in the truck's path of destruction.

Other examples of truck driver negligence include: texting while driving, speeding, impatient driving, and driving an improperly loaded truck.

Have to Say

  • John is very professional, and courteous, and I felt very comfortable and at ease having him handle my case. I will certainly work with him again should I find myself in the need.

    “I contacted John Vaught to represent me in a case recently concerning the death of my wife. He was recommended to me by someone that worked in the legal system while I was asking for a lawyer with knowledge and integrity. From the time of my initial interview with John, throughout the entire case, I found that he is indeed very knowledgeable of law and procedure. I was very impressed that, not only could he tell me what the law was on a given point, he also had the experience to tell me how the process was going to go, what the opposing lawyers were thinking, and even tell me what time frame was normal. Nothing was ever left out or forgotten, the process moved along very smoothly, and John kept me very informed of what was going on and what I needed to do the entire time. I also found John to be a man of integrity. It was very important to me that I not get a lawyer that was only interested in money with no respect or feelings for people. I believe that John is truly a man that cares about people, and is genuinely interested in truth and justice in any situation, an he was completely truthful with me through the whole process. John is very professional, and courteous, and I felt very comfortable and at ease having him handle my case. I will certainly work with him again should I find myself in the need.”

    “Vaught Law Firm is a wonderful and professional organization. After hearing some tragic news about my mother's sudden change in health, I called the Vaught Law Firm without any prior knowledge of them or any other lawyers in the area. As soon as I called, I received nothing but full unconditional support from the office of John Vaught. He was able to meet with me immediately and gave me his full attention. Mr. Vaught was always professional and offered assistance in everyway possible that he could. He was available after hours and whenever needed. The most impressive aspect about his law firm was how he conducted business. He was very personable and really cared about the case regardless of how it turned out. I admired how he conducted business because it felt like it was more than just business. Furthermore, Mr. Vaught never mentioned any fees and never worked conditional upon any promise of money.
