The Spence Law Firm, LLC has taken on the major trucking companies from coast to coast when their negligence injures or kills another innocent motorist. According to the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), Wyoming has the highest rate of deaths per population associated with trucking accidents. We have decades of experience fighting for motorists injured or killed on Interstate 80 – I-80 – in Wyoming, and across the country from coast to coast, and we work regularly in the West in Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Colorado, New Mexico, Montana, Utah, and Idaho. Due to the sheer size and weight of trucks, the speed at which they travel, and their blind spots, negligent and reckless driving by truckers presents an especially dangerous hazard to other motorists on the highways and interstate. Truck drivers and trucking companies are required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and each state’s driving laws to follow the rules of the road. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations – FMCSR’s – are federal safety regulations that govern all interstate trucking operations, and these safety regulations are often critical in determining whether a semi-truck driver or company has violated its duty to the other motorists on the road and the public.
Trucks involved in collisions are often in violation of one or more of these federal or state safety regulations. The regulation of the trucking industry is complex, many parties may be accountable and understanding the details and specifics of the regulations during a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit requires attorneys with special experience in trucking litigation. We have experience representing motorists injured on Interstate I-80 and other interstate highways from coast to coast. We have experience taking on the largest, most powerful transportation and trucking companies in the world. We have access to expert trucking consultants and safety specialists who can help us analyze the facts and circumstances from a crash involving a semi-tractor trailer or other commercial interstate trucking company, to determine what laws may have been violated in causing a serious accident.
