Federal & State Trucking Regulations
Longstanding recognition of the risks and seriousness of trucking accidents has led to a complex, extensive body of federal and state trucking regulations. If you have been hurt in an accident involving a semi, tractor-trailer, construction vehicle or commercial truck, it can be essential to contact a truck accident lawyer in Florida with a solid knowledge of these state and federal regulations.
Complete Investigation of Insurance, Driver Qualifications, & Regulatory Violations
Freidin Brown, P.A. maintains connections to top-quality accident investigators and trucking industry experts prepared to consider whether federal or state regulations were violated and may have contributed to your accident.
These considerations may include regulations on:

- Specific requirements for driver training, licensing, background checking
- Federal trucking regulations governing how long a driver can be on the road, intended to prevent accidents due to driver fatigue or inattention
- The need to maintain accurate log books/electronic records showing miles traveled, all maintenance conducted, and other data.
- Stricter limits for alcohol use by drivers and measures intended to prevent drug use
- Limitations on load weights for various semis and other vehicle types
- Special, area-specific traffic regulations restricting highways, other roadways, and which lanes commercial trucks can travel
