Truck/18-Wheeler Collision

Let us help when you need it most

Gates Law Firm believes in holding professional truck drivers and trucking companies accountable when they do not follow the rules that they are mandated to follow. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) gives truck drivers and trucking companies the privilege and authority to drive on the roads that they share with us. In order to enjoy that privilege, truck drivers and trucking companies are to adhere and to follow more rules than those who drive 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 got your back.

When truck drivers and trucking companies do not follow the rules of the road, life-changing injuries can occur. If you or your loved one has suffered because a truck driver or a trucking company caused a collision, contact Gates Law Firm today to discuss your legal options.
