St. Louis Driver Fatigue Lawyer
Truck drivers and truck companies are required to keep accurate records regarding driving time, cargo weight, rest and meals. Drivers keep their records manually, in what is commonly referred to as a log book. False entries or skips in log book entries is a serious violation of federal regulations and puts the driver at risk of losing a commercial driver's license (CDL). If the truck is involved in an accident and log book information is shown to be fraudulent or violates provisions of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act, the truck company can be held liable for damages to all injured parties.
