Hours of Service Violations in Massachusetts
Trucking companies are subject to a range of strict federal and state regulations, including those related to the hours of service that their drivers may operate their vehicles. Now that you believe that your accident was caused by a driver who was excessively fatigued, there is good reason to suspect that the accident may have been prevented if the trucking company followed hours-of-service regulations.
If you were injured in a truck accident that you believe may be attributed to an hours of service violation, the Massachusetts employer negligence/liability attorneys at Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, can assess your claim and then help you take legal action against the responsible trucking company.
