Let us help when you need it most
Accidents involving 18 wheelers and other large commercial vehicles can be devastating, often resulting in catastrophic injuries or even death. At Gates Law, we specialize in handling these types of cases and understanding the unique challenges they present. Our team of experienced attorneys have a deep understanding of the laws and regulations governing the trucking industry, including the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations. Truck drivers and trucking companies are given the privilege and authority to drive on the roads we share, but in exchange, they are held to a higher standard of safety regulations than drivers of regular cars, trucks, and SUVs.
Some of those additional rules include:
Driving limited hours (truck drivers must stop driving after on the road);
Submitting to stricter drugs and alcohol testing;
Conducting pre-trip and post-trip inspections;
Undergoing comprehensive testing before getting a Commercial Drivers’ License (CDL) such as written tests and in-person driving tests
You don’t have to bear this alone. We have your back.
