Cincinnati Hours of Service Violations Attorney

Hours of service regulations are federally-imposed limitations on the amount of time truck drivers may spend behind the wheel during given periods. These regulations were created to combat driver fatigue, which can lead to devastating traffic accidents. Unfortunately, some trucking companies have policies in place which create incentives for their drivers to violate these hours of service regulations, thereby endangering the lives of countless motorists.

If you or someone you know has been injured in an accident involving a commercial truck, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. Contact the Cincinnati hours of service violations lawyers of Stepleton Dugan, LLC, today at 513-321-7733 to discuss your case and learn more about whether you may qualify for financial reparation.

Types of Hours of Service Violations

Federal laws restrict the number of hours truck drivers may spend driving over different time periods. Some examples of the hours of service regulations include:

  • Drivers are not permitted to operate their vehicle for more than 11 hours in a 14-hour period
  • Drivers may not operate their vehicle for more than 14 hours out of any 24 hours
  • Drivers cannot be on duty for more than 60 hours in any seven-day period or for more than 70 hours for an eight-day period

Drivers who exceed these limitations may be held liable for any injuries that may be caused by their actions.
