COMMENTS:

Houston truck accident lawyer, Gordon, Elias & Seely, says that strict trucking regulations are in place to protect truck drivers and the occupants of other vehicles on the road. Unfortunately, many commercial trucking companies and drivers ignore these regulations in an attempt to make faster deliveries resulting in potentially higher profits. When this occurs, the party responsible for the violation may be held accountable for any resulting accident and injuries.
