Determining the cause of truck accidents aids compensation claims

Commercial vehicle drivers are held to very high standards when they drive. That isn't because officials want to make a trucker's work life difficult. It is because the size and weight of these trucks makes them very dangerous on the roadways. Just last week, we discussed the case of the three family members who were killed in an accident with a trucker hauling metal. That trucker is now facing criminal charges, but that won't bring the family members back.

Possible changes coming to trucking regulations

While federal trucking regulations are normally focused on making the roads safer for truck drivers and others on the road, some are questioning whether the provisions in the 2016 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development funding bill are in the public's best interest. The bill proposes an increase in how long truck drivers can drive without taking a break and would also increase the maximum length for double trailers.

Bus accident leaves a church from Statesville shaken

A bus accident that occurred on I-40 in Tennessee has left the town of Statesville in mourning. According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, the bus carrying a North Carolina church group allegedly crossed the center median and veered into oncoming traffic. The bus reported hit a Chevy Tahoe before striking an oncoming tractor-trailer. The truck was quickly engulfed in flames, while the bus was turned over onto its side, which smashed many of the windows shielding passengers.
