FMCSA Regulations Guide Truck Drivers to Safety

Clay Dugas discusses the biggest mistake a lawyer can make is treating a car crash with an 18-wheeler the same way as a regular automobile crash. The difference is that 18-wheelers are governed by FMCSA regulations and that truckers are expected to know these regulations, to follow them, and even to keep a copy of the regulations with them in their trucks. The difference between truckers who get in trouble and cause accidents is the word professional. Truckers who are professional understand that FMCSA regulations aren't a burden but are instead meant to protect the public and the trucker.
