What are hours of service regulations?

Federal laws require truckers to work no more than a certain amount of time in any given period. These laws, known as hours of service regulations, are in place to help ensure that truckers don’t become excessively fatigued while operating their vehicles, making them a danger to themselves and others on the road. Unfortunately, many truckers and trucking companies disregard these regulations, putting others at risk of suffering a serious injury in a truck accident.

If you would like to learn more about hours of service regulations or filing a personal injury claim, call (888) 694-1671. Our legal team at Joe Miller Law can evaluate your situation and help you understand your legal options for pursuing compensation.
