Because commercial trucks, traveling at highway speeds, have such destructive potential, the federal government regulates many phases of their operations, mandating standards for workers and equipment maintenance. Unfortunately, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has been unable to enforce the regulations effectively, so carriers get away with negligent performance until devastating accidents occur. At Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, we represent victims of trucking accidents across North Carolina. We have firsthand experience investigating accidents where unreported violations led directly to tragedy. If you’ve been hurt in a truck accident, we promise to thoroughly investigate the circumstances to uncover any regulatory violations and will fight to hold all wrongdoers accountable.
According to the Highway Safety Research Center of the University of North Carolina, accidents involving large commercial trucks killed 117 people in North Carolina in 2014, and the number of fatalities increased to 126 in 2015. That year, commercial truck accidents killed nine people in Charlotte and four in Raleigh.
