Hold Trucking Companies Responsible – Contact A Louisville Accident Lawyer!
Trucking companies have a responsibility to hire qualified truck drivers. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Hours of Service rules, truckers’ driving shifts are legally not supposed to exceed 14 hours of driving in one stretch, but some drivers may ignore driving limits or exceed hours due to pressure from their employers.
They must also make sure the tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers they own and operate are well maintained and do not exceed the legal weight limits.
If trucking companies fail to do any of these things, they put everyone on the road at risk. Truck accidents are serious matters. That’s why the Shelton Law Group takes such a hard line on trucking company liability cases. They know that truck companies must follow the rules. And if they don’t, they need to be held responsible if one of their drivers causes a serious truck accident.
