The government regulates commercial trucking. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the agency that oversees the industry, outlines strict safety requirements for trucking companies.

In a trucking accident, various parties may be liable if they violated any trucking regulations. Personal injury cases related to trucking accidents can quickly become complex. The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin can work for you and determine if there were any violations.

How we investigate semi-truck accidents

Depending on the circumstances of the truck accident, we may look at the following:

  • Trucker's driving background (any history of accidents or moving violations?)
  • Maintenance records kept the by the trucking company
  • Hiring, training and supervising practices of the trucking company
  • Truck driver log

In addition, we may need to access records for in-state companies through both the North Carolina Department of Transportation and the Secretary of State's Office. It may also be advisable to examine safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for the company that owns the truck.
