Montana Truck Laws
If you’ve been injured in a truck accident in Montana, or if you’ve lost a family member in an accident with a commercial vehicle, add Michael to your team of legal professionals for the most comprehensive representation. In Montana, highways such as Interstate 15 and Interstate 94 and population centers such as Butte, Helena and Great Falls attract dense commercial vehicle traffic every day. That traffic leads to hundreds of truck-related accidents on Montana highways every year, and victims should take every measure to make sure their rights are protected. Consult with Michael to see how he can provide your team of local attorneys with an experienced litigator who has a track record of earning higher settlement amounts for victims of truck accidents.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (Title 49, Parts 350-399) govern all vehicles engaged in interstate traffic.
There are some situations where a tractor-trailer or other commercial motor vehicle is involved in only intrastate travel. For example, an appliance store in Billings may own a truck that only makes in-state deliveries.
The Montana Department of Public Safety has adopted Title 49, Parts 382, 383, 384, 390, 391, 392, 393, 394, 395, 396, 397, 398, and 399 of the federal regulations.
