As a seasoned negotiator, litigator and compassionate advocate, he seeks to defend the rights of victims injured through the negligence of others. During his almost three decades of practice, Mr. Farr has handled numerous commercial truck accidents, including collisions caused by violations of interstate and intrastate trucking rules.
Georgia Intrastate Commercial Carriers
The commercial trucking industry follows strict federal and state guidelines, and these often depend on whether the vehicle is carrying freight only within state lines or across them. Intrastate trucks operate only within state boundaries and are governed by Georgia law. Examples of vehicles that are governed by the State Department of Transportation include:
- Cement trailers
- Construction trucks
- Dump trucks
- Fire trucks
- Garbage trucks
- Passenger for hire vehicles carrying over 10 people
- Public transportation vehicles
- Logging trucks
- School buses
Interstate travel is covered under Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, which are typically mirrored by most state laws. A significant factor to remember is that sometimes, specific state trucking laws can impact personal injury liability by providing alternative sources for compensation that are not available under federal law.
