California Tractor Trailer Accident Attorneys
Commercial tractor trailer accidents can be caused by numerous parties (individual and companies). In some instances, the owner of the trailer is the same as the owner of the truck. This is not always true. The owner of the truck trailer may be a separate company from the driver or owner of the tractor. It is important to know the distinction, because in some cases, the fault may lie with the truck trailer’s owner. As with big rig truck owners, there are rules and regulations governing the tractor trailer’s safety requirements, including the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). In addition, for truck trailer’s, the Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations, requires an underride bar of specific height and width. Unfortunately, often times many truck trailers are missing some of this equipment, or have sub-standard equipment. If you, or someone you love, has been seriously injured or fatally injured in a truck accident because of missing or faulty equipment on truck’s trailer, then contact us, experienced California tractor trailer accident attorneys, for a free consultation.
