Violation of Trucking Regulations in Ohio
Large trucks are subject to state and federal trucking regulations due to the risk these vehicles pose to cars and motorcycles on the road. Failure to follow these regulations may result in catastrophic injuries, which often require medical attention and ongoing care. If you have been injured in a truck crash, you should consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
I am attorney Martin E. Goff, and I protect the rights of seriously injured clients. If you believe the accident that caused your injuries was a result of a violation of a trucking regulation, contact my Toledo law firm at 567-298-4661 to set up a free consultation.
Toledo Truck Accident Attorney
For more than 30 years, I have been representing the rights of accident victims throughout Ohio. I will investigate the details surrounding the truck accident to determine if the accident was caused by a regulation violation.
State and federal trucking regulations cover the following areas:
- Driver qualifications
- Maintenance and repairs of commercial vehicles
- Transportation of hazardous materials
- Cargo weight
- Use of alcohol and controlled substances
- Hours spent on the road
I will help you navigate through the complex state and federal trucking regulations and apply them to the specific facts surrounding your case. In any accident case I take, I place an emphasis on fact finding.
At Martin E. Goff, Attorney at Law, my staff and I will gather and examine information such as the truck driver's history, log sheets and truck maintenance history. For example, if I find that a truck driver's hour log is over the limit or has a history of driver fatigue, I can use that evidence to build a case against the driver for failing to follow trucking regulations.
