The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act

Comments Off

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act has over 1,000 rules and regulations that govern the tractor trailers that drive on the interstate highway system . However , there are only ten key laws that an attorney should know backwards and forwards in an truck accident lawsuit . In the next few posts , I will mention these top rules . The first one is 49 C.F.R. Section 387 which sets minimum levels of insurance .The minimum limits are $750,000 for dry freight , 1,000,000 for petroleum or oil , 5,000,000 for hazadous materials . Knowing the insurance minimums is a great place to start in pursuing the truck accident cases.
