Maryland Truck Accident Lawyers
Legally, a truck accident injury claim is a very different animal than a typical car accident case. The injuries and damages are usually more serious and the issues of liability (legal responsibility) are often much more complex.
If you have been injured in a truck accident, it is important to be represented by an attorney who is thoroughly familiar with all the state and federal truck safety regulations. At the Jaklitsch Law Group, our Maryland truck accident lawyers have successfully resolved numerous truck accident claims. We understand the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) regulations as well as state truck safety rules and how they apply to your case.
We use our understanding of state and federal trucking regulations to determine who is at fault for your injuries or loss, and to seek the appropriate amount of compensation from them.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has specific rules for truck drivers, vehicles and trucking companies. State truck safety rules can involve weight restrictions on roads and bridges and which lanes a truck must use.
Specifically, federal regulations control the number of hours a truck driver can be on the road, specify the manner in which a truck should be loaded and require a certain schedule of truck maintenance. Violating these rules may lead to:
- Driver overtime resulting in driver fatigue
- Poor truck maintenance
- Improperly secured loads
- Unbalanced loads
Our lawyers know and understand all these rules and regulations. The truck companies fear our experience and skill in handling truck crash cases. As a result, we are often able to secure a fair settlement for our clients.
