Illinois Trucking Regulations Violation Accident Lawyers

Truck Accidents Due to Regulation Violations Attorneys Serving DuPage and Kane Counties

The commercial trucking industry is highly regulated both on the state and federal level. There are numerous rules and regulations for truckers set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the state of Illinois. It is the responsibility of drivers and trucking companies to understand and be in full compliance with the laws and regulations governing their industry. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by failure to comply with trucking regulations, it is important to speak with an experienced truck accidents attorney so you understand your rights and those responsible are held fully accountable.

For over 35 years, Mevorah Law Offices LLC has represented clients injured in truck accidents in Chicago and throughout Illinois. We have extensive experience with the unique complexities involved in such cases, as well as the challenge of going up against well-funded adversaries such as the large commercial trucking companies. We put this experience to work to aggressively advocate for our clients. When a driver and/or trucking company fails to comply with trucking regulations, we work hard to recover full damages for the injuries of our clients.

Our attorneys are honest, compassionate, accessible, and down to earth. We understand the physical, emotional, and financial toll a motor vehicle accident injury can have on you and your family, and we do everything possible to make your experience with us as smooth and seamless as possible. We offer free consultations, extended evening and weekend hours, five locations in the local area, and we keep you regularly informed on the progress of your case. In addition, all of our personal injury cases are handled on a contingency basis, so you never pay upfront attorney fees to receive the skilled representation you deserve.

Common Trucking Regulation Violations in Illinois

The federal government and state of Illinois have strict regulations on commercial vehicles to ensure the safety of their drivers and other motorists and pedestrians on the road. Unfortunately, pressure to deliver loads on a tight schedule often encourages drivers to violate these standards.

Failure to comply with trucking regulations can lead to accidents with serious injuries and fatalities. Some of the most common trucking regulation violations include:

  • Hours of Service Violations: Truck drivers have a limited number of daily and weekly hours they are allowed to operate their vehicles. When these limits are exceeded, it can cause driver error and fatigue.
  • Poor Truck Maintenance: There are minimum maintenance requirements for commercial vehicles. When drivers fail to perform basic maintenance on their trucks, truck equipment failure is a frequent result.
  • Cargo Overload or Misload: There are strict weight limits for large trucks driven on interstate highways. If the cargo in the truck exceeds these limits or is not loaded and distributed properly, the risk of serious accidents is increased.
  • Driving while Drunk or on Drugs: Commercial drivers are held to higher standards than other drivers for alcohol and drugs. For example, a commercial truck driver is in violation of DUI laws with a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of only .04%.
Because of the extensive laws and regulations governing the industry, trucking accident cases differ greatly from other types of auto accidents. For this reason, it is essential to work with an attorney that thoroughly understands these laws, and how to hold drivers and trucking companies fully responsible when they are guilty of failure to comply with trucking regulations.
