Accidents caused by semi-trucks often result fatal or debilitating injuries. The large size of these trucks makes them capable of causing a very high degree of harm in a collision. The owners or operators of big-rig trucks must comply with additional state and federal safety regulations designed to minimize collisions and injuries they cause.
Individuals and companies who operate large trucks are required to perform regular inspections of systems used for securing the cargo. The equipment used for securing loads must meet the standards set by the government. The Federal government imposes a maximum weight limit of 80,000 lbs. to a fully loaded tractor-trailer.
Many accidents involving semi-trucks occur because of failure to comply with one or more of the state and federal regulations. The State of California requires a commercial vehicle to carry insurance coverage in the amount of $750,000.00 per incident.
