Why must truckers perform pre-trip inspections?

Fleet managers have many responsibilities. One of those is to make sure and inspect their trucks before the tractor-trailer operator takes it out on the road. While many truckers may not see the point in checking out their truck before it's driven out of the parking lot, federal regulators demand that truckers do this for a reason. Tractor-trailers are large and often heavy. They can do a lot of damage if they're involved in a crash.

You have 2 years to file a personal injury claim

Being involved in a car wreck can lead to serious injuries, so the victims must ensure that they get the medical care they need. This is sometimes a costly endeavor when the co-pays, deductibles and other out-of-pocket expenses come into the picture. Unfortunately, not obtaining the care and other items that are necessary for treatment isn't really an option. This puts the financial pressure on the innocent victims of these crashes.

Being employed in the railroad industry here in West Virginia is a dangerous job. The federal government signed the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) into place in 1908 after realizing just how risky it is for individuals to be employed as railroad workers face. Railroad companies are required to adhere to certain safety regulations as part of FELA.
