Trucking Regulations in Alabama

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) oversees trucking regulations and ensures that they are being upheld. Without the safety precautions put in place by the FMCSA, the freeways would be a much more dangerous place to share the road.

Our firm has a thorough understanding of trucking regulations and upkeep as approved by the FMCSA. Our personal injury attorneys can recognize the numerous ways in which a driver of trucking company can be negligent, from extending driving hours to unsafe lengths without a break to cutting out regularly needed maintenance checks.

We can check to see if the following regulations were met:

  • Maintenance of the truck
  • Accuracy of the driver logs
  • Maximum driving hours weren’t exceeded
  • Alcohol and drug tests
  • Regular truck inspections
  • Truck weight standards and requirements
