What Are the Hours of Service Regulations?

Truck drivers are heavily regulated since the trucks they drive can cause such catastrophic damages in the event of an accident. One of the most well know regulations is called the hours of service regulation that aim to prevent fatigued driving. According to these rules:

  • Truck drivers can work no more than 14 hours in one day
  • Truck drivers must rest or take meal breaks totaling 3 hours in a day
  • Driver must rest for at least 10 consecutive hours at the end of the day
  • Truck drivers must take days off work at regular intervals as well

Building a Case Against the Liable Parties

Based on our experience, the trucking company's actions may add to the damages you are due. Count on our firm to represent you and ensure your rights are not violated during the legal process.

We will ask the tough questions, including:

  • Was the driver properly trained?
  • Were any undue burdens placed on the driver?
  • Was the driver fatigued prior to the accident?
  • Was the driver adequately screened at the time of hiring?
  • Was there a history of accidents or behavior problems for the truck driver?
