Washington, D.C., FMCSA Violation Attorney

Maryland Trucking Company Negligence Lawyer

Truck companies using our nation's interstates and public roads in the District of Columbia and Maryland are strictly regulated by provisions of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act (FMCSA). Drivers are required to be highly trained on the rules of the road, as well as the equipment they operate. Truck companies are required to provide additional training as new technology is introduced and laws change. In addition, truck companies are required to maintain their vehicles in serviceable condition and ensure that they remain within load and weight requirements for the freight they are hauling.

Despite working in one of the most heavily regulated industries in America, truck drivers and companies often violate FMCSA regulations. In a typical year in Washington, D.C., and Maryland, nearly 2,000 large trucks and commercial vehicles are involved in accidents, many because of driver negligence and FMCSA violations by trucking corporations.
