Trucks Accident Lawsuits in the Rain

Section 392.14 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations requires truck drivers to use extreme caution driving a commercial truck in snow, ice, and other inclement conditions including rain. Accordingly, if the weather conditions are not perfect, a truck accident lawyer in Maryland should argue that federal law preempts state law and that the standard is no longer what the reasonable prudent truck driver would do but instead, whether the truck driver used “extreme caution.”
