New Mexico Truck Accident Attorneys Discuss Safety Violations of Truck Company
07/10/2012 // Albuquerque, New Mexico // Fadduol, Cluff & Hardy// Fadduol, Cluff & Hardy // (press release)
The Albuquerque truck accident attorneys at Fadduol, Cluff & Hardy, P.C. represent victims who have been hurt in trucking accidents caused by commercial truck companies and their drivers. They help these victims obtain compensation from the truck driver or the trucking company responsible for the accident.
While some trucking accidents are caused by driver negligence, other trucking accidents are caused by a company’s blatant disregard of safety measures. To encourage trucking companies to comply with applicable safety regulations, the United States Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration may order a trucking company to cease transportation services if the company commits serious safety violations.
FMCSA recently ordered Tennessee-based truck company Three Angels Farms and its owners to immediately cease all transportation services after FMCSA’s safety investigators found multiple safety infractions. The investigators learned that the company permitted its drivers to drive commercial motor vehicles without commercial driver’s licenses and did not test its drivers for controlled substances in a proper manner. The company also committed violations in hours-of-service compliance and vehicle maintenance. During the past six months, the company had two accidents involving poorly maintained vehicles and fatigued or disqualified drivers.
Despite the enforcement efforts of FMCSA, trucking companies regularly flaunt safety regulations. Unfortunately, such conduct may lead to traffic accidents that result in horrific injuries and even death.
