San Antonio Truck Accident Lawyers
Aggressive & Skillful Advocacy in Bexar County, TX
Tom Rhodes Law Firm P.C. is dedicated to protecting the rights of victims
injured in serious truck accidents throughout the state of Texas. The
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) was designed to regulate
the operation of these massive vehicles - which often tip the scales at
80,000 pounds or more. Because of their massive size and bulk, big rigs
pose a substantial threat to other drivers. In order to make our roads
safer, the FMCSA enforces a number of regulations for trucking companies
and truck drivers.
The safety regulations placed on truck drivers and trucking companies include,
but are not limited to:
- Restrictions on the number of hours that a trucker may drive without a break
- Requirements for proper maintenance of the vehicle as well as regular inspection
and loading techniques
- Standards for driver education and training
- Zero tolerance policy for drug and alcohol use while on the job
