Trucking safety laws are very strict, dictating specific rules involving everything from weight restrictions on a truck to the number of hours that a driver can drive in a day. These rules are in place to protect both the driver and other motorists on the road; consequently, when a driver breaks the law and causes an accident, we must hold both the driver and the trucking company responsible for the accident. If you have experienced a severe trucking accident, our team at the Law Offices of Adam J. Zayed, P.C. will advocate for your rights. Our trucking accident attorneys serve individuals across Chicago who have suffered injuries in truck accidents and other motor vehicle incidents.

Trucking Industry And Violation Of Trucking Law
Both state and federal laws regulate the trucking industry. Truckers must undergo tests to fulfill specific responsibilities mandated by these laws. Trucking companies must also have their trucks go through regular maintenance checks. Truckers must keep logs of their journeys. These laws help keep all drivers on the road safe. If any rules are violated, there is a greater risk of an accident.
