Maryland Commercial Trucking Rules / Regulations
Being involved in a Maryland roadway accident is one of the most traumatic events that can take place in an individual’s life. But when it comes to motor vehicle accidents in general, surviving a crash involving a passenger car and a large commercial vehicle — such as a semi-tractor trailer or other kind of heavy truck — may be just the beginning of a months- or years-long path to recovery. Injury-related commercial trucking accidents can leave victims medically, emotionally and financially marginalized. Similarly, trying to fight for one’s legal rights from the confines of a hospital bed can be daunting, at best; which is why it is crucial that victims of trucking-related traffic accidents speak with a personal injury attorney as soon as they are able.

Litigating a personal injury claim against a commercial trucking company often involves a different legal approach than fighting for a client who has been badly hurt in a crash caused by another motorist in a privately-owned sedan, SUV or minivan. One of the more important points to remember is that commercial truckers and the companies they work for must abide by federal and state regulations created to maintain the safety of commercial motor vehicles that travel on public roads and highways.
