Seeking Answers & Accountability for Big Rig Accident Victims
Oregon lawmakers recently took action in the 2011 Session to tighten the ban on the use of hand-held phones while driving. The new house bill in Oregon removes a problematic exemption that allowed people who drove for a living to use hand-held cell phones if it was necessary for their job. Even though the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has banned truck drivers from using cell phones while driving, accidents are still occurring for this reason.
No matter the cause, accidents involving semi-trucks usually result in greater injuries and losses because of the size of the vehicle and the speed at which it travels. If you or someone you love has been involved in a serious commercial truck accident, you may need the help of an Oregon truck accident attorney to get fair compensation.
