Commercial Motor Vehicle Accidents


Commercial Motor vehicle accident litigation requires a full understanding of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act Regulations, Commercial Driver’s License Manuals, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act Compliance Manuals, federally mandated record keeping requirements for motor carriers, common carrier law, civil trial law and civil pretrial law.  Finding a lawyer that is experienced and knowledgeable in all those areas of law is a difficult task.  Fortunately, the American Bar Association has accredited three board certifications issued by the National Board of Trial Advocacy that cover these fields.
