Recovering For Tragic Truck Wreck Injuries And Deaths
North Carolina serves as the crossroads for truck traffic moving along the U.S. eastern seaboard. Every day, tens of thousands of semi trucks, construction trucks, buses, delivery vans and commercial vehicles traverse Interstate 26 and I-95, as well as state highways and county roads. During a typical year, more than 2,000 commercial trucks and buses are involved in injury crashes on North Carolina roads and highways.*

Strict Trucking Regulations Sometimes Fail
Truck companies and licensed commercial drivers are under strict regulations governed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). These regulations cover every component of truck driver safety and trucking safety. Truckers are required to maintain strict logs registering their time behind the wheel, breaks, meals and sleep between driving shifts. Truck companies are required to follow laws regarding truck and trailer maintenance, trailer weight and load restrictions, driver training and licensing. Violating any regulation in the front office, in the maintenance garage, on the loading dock or on the road may mean the truck company faces liability for personal injury and/or wrongful death in the event of an accident.
