If you or a family member has been injured in a tractor-trailer or trucking accident, it is important to seek immediate legal advice.  Since the use of tractor-trailers and the interstate system became a popular method of shipping goods throughout the United States, thousands of serious and fatal tractor-trailer and trucking accidents have occurred.  These accidents are frequently caused by the negligence of the tractor-trailer driver and/or trucking company. 

It is important to know that trucking companies and tractor-trailer drivers are governed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and are required to follow state laws and federal regulations.  The federal regulations are known as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMSCR’s). 

These regulations control what information a truck driver and company must have about their driver's history, trucks, trailers and cargo.  These regulations also control how long a company and driver must retain this information, which could be very important to your case.  The time in which the company and driver can dispose of some information can be shorter that the limitation period for filing a claim.  As such, it is important to quickly seek legal advice from counsel who is very familiar with the FMSCR’s and applicable state law.
