Q: Which trucking regulations affect my Maryland truck accident lawsuit?
There is no easy answer to this question. No two truck accidents are the same, so no two Maryland truck accident lawsuits are the same either. So many federal and state regulations oversee the trucking industry that it can be dizzying to try to determine which ones matter to your particular case. Add the fact that trucking regulations are frequently being revised, and it can be nearly impossible for someone unfamiliar with the trucking industry to figure out what’s relevant.
To get an idea of the regulations that may affect the outcome of your Maryland truck crash lawsuit, check out the 2010 Maryland Motor Carrier Handbook for a list of state regulations regarding trucking, or go to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s site for federal truck driver regulations. As you can see, there are hundreds of regulations that come into play for any given truck accident and the corresponding lawsuit.
This is a large part of why trucking accident lawsuits in Maryland are said to be so complicated. It takes a person familiar with the laws regarding both the trucking industry in general and truck accidents in particular to know how best to put together a lawsuit that will help you get the compensation you need.
