Trucking Violations Can Have Devastating Consequences
The trucking industry is heavily regulated for good reason. Massive vehicles carrying thousands of pounds of cargo and traveling at high rates of speed can cause life-shattering damage, and truck drivers, trucking companies and other parties in the trucking industry must be held to a high standard of safety.
At our St. Louis law firm, we help people who have been harmed due to negligence in the trucking industry. Unfortunately, regulatory violations and other safety infractions are often the cause of serious truck accidents. As experienced truck accident lawyers, we know how to investigate these cases and help our clients get the full and fair compensation they need and deserve.

Types Of Trucking Violations
In addition to speeding, texting and drunk or drugged driving, multiple other types of violations may factor into a truck accident claim. For example, federal regulations limit how long a truck driver can work and drive in a single shift. Federal regulations also require truck drivers to take rest breaks and get sufficient sleep, as well as keep accurate logbooks that show the drivers’ hours of service.
Other causes of truck accidents include:
- Overloaded trucks
- Unsecured loads
- Poor vehicle maintenance
- Defective truck parts
