Trucking Companies and Failure to Comply with Safety Regulations

Trucking companies in Wisconsin are regulated by both state and federal safety regulations. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires that all trucking companies submit to an audit within eighteen months of entering into business. In these audits, the FMCSA checks to make sure that:

  • All drivers are licensed
  • All drivers have passed drug testing programs
  • All drivers are properly insured
  • All drivers are medically capable of performing their job

Additionally, these audits check to ensure that trucking companies are keeping accurate driving logs and proper service records for all of their trucks. Failure to comply with these regulations automatically results in a company being shut down.

Accidents Caused by Failure to Comply with Safety Regulations

When a truck accident is caused by a company’s failure to comply with safety regulations, there are severe legal and financial repercussions. If you or a loved one is injured in an accident with a truck driver whose company neglected to comply with FMCSA regulations, you can hold the company itself liable for all of your injuries.

The Wisconsin truck accident attorneys at the Cochran Firm have years of experience investigating truck accidents and proving fault in these often complex cases. You may have a right to seek full compensation from trucking companies for medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We will fight to ensure you receive all of the damages you are entitled to.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident in Milwaukee or surrounding areas of Wisconsin, please contact the experienced truck accident attorneys at the Cochran Firm Wisconsin today to schedule an initial consultation.
