When you share the road with a large truck, you don't know where it is coming from or where it is going. It may be coming from Ontario or it may be coming from Orlando, but no matter how far its journey, it only takes a few critical feet for the driver to doze off or make an error of judgment, endangering you and your family in a serious truck accident.
When you pursue compensation from the trucking company, however, it does matter where the truck came from and where it's going. It matters whether the truck is an intrastate truck--one intended to travel only in the state of Florida--or an interstate truck--one intended to cross the state line. Interstate trucks are under the jurisdiction of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), and they have very strict safety guidelines, procedures, and inspection schedules to meet.
The FMCSA has strict standards for driver qualifications, equipment maintenance, and cargo securement. When an accident occurs, it is often not an isolated incident, and a string of safety violations points clearly to the trucking company's negligence.
It is equally likely that an intrastate trucking accident is not an isolated incident, but there may not be the same paper trail. In this case, an experienced truck accident attorney can be crucial in proving the trucking company's negligence.
