Frequently Asked Questions About Truck Accident Claims

What special evidentiary concerns arise in Pennsylvania truck accident cases? 

Because large trucks pose such a risk to smaller vehicles on the roads, strict safety regulations require that both the driver and the trucking company maintain certain records with respect to hours driven, and dates when both inspections and maintenance occurred.  However, trucking companies are not required to maintain these records forever, making it important that we jump into action quickly to notify the trucking company that they must be preserved. Additionally, many trucks contain a black box recording device—similar to those found in airplanes—that can be critical to gathering valuable evidence to determine the cause of a truck accident.  The trucking company must similarly be notified quickly to preserve the black box data.

What are some examples of the limitations on the number of hours truck drivers can work? 

To prevent truck accidents, truck drivers are only permitted to be behind the wheel for 11 hours in any 24-hour period.  14 hours is the maximum amount of time that a truck driver can be on duty in a 24-hour period (meaning while driving or performing any other work-related task).  A further limitation specifies that truck drivers must have at least 10 consecutive hours off work per 24-hour period. The driver is also required to stop for at least 30 minutes of rest after driving for 8 hours.
