North Dakota Truck Laws
Trying truck accident cases in North Dakota requires a trained legal mind, one that understands the many nuances of truck accident litigation. Boasting high-traffic freeways such as Interstate 94 and Interstate 29, and with population centers such as Fargo and Bismarck and a busy international crossing, North Dakota is home to hundreds of accidents involving commercial vehicles every year. If you or a family member has been injured in an accident with a tractor-trailer, charter bus or other commercial vehicle, contact Michael and enlist the representation of a lawyer who has been recognized as one of the top truck accident attorneys in the country.
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 Fargo may own a truck that only makes in-state deliveries.
The North Dakota 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.
