Federal trucking laws and regulations exist that govern the trucking industry. These laws include safety regulations designed ensure the safe operation of semi-trucks, tractor trailers and other types of commercial vehicles.
Despite these laws and regulations the number of trucking related accidents and crashes has increased by approximately 20 percent over the last 20 years, accounting for over 5000 fatalities in the year 2010 alone.
When a truck driver is negligent or careless while operating his or her truck, the result can often be quite severe or even fatal.
