trucl_accident_overturnTennessee trucking company, Three Angels Farms, has been shut down by the U.S. DOT’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, after an extensive review uncovered numerous federal violations concerning driver qualification requirements, hours-of-service compliance, vehicle maintenance and even drug and alcohol testing. Trucking accidents account for a significant number of serious injuries and tragic loss of life in Tennessee and across the United States every year, due in large part to the failure of trucking companies to adhere to federally-mandated safety regulations in favor of making a profit. If you have suffered injuries caused by a trucking accident in Tennessee, contact our qualified trucking accident lawyers at Michael D. Ponce & Associates today.

TN Truck Company Poses Hazard to Public Safety

Federal officials ordered Three Angels Farms and its owners to immediately terminate all transportation services, based on critical safety violations that posed an imminent hazard to public safety. During the review of the trucking company, investigators found that the company failed to conduct proper drug and alcohol testing of its drivers and also allowed drivers to operate commercial trucks without a proper commercial driver’s license. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration oversees the trucking industry, establishing safety precautions meant to protect the safety of drivers and other motorists on Tennessee roadways. Unfortunately, when truck drivers or trucking company owners fail to observe these regulations, the consequences can be devastating.

Three Angels Farms Shows “Continuing and Flagrant Disregard” for Federal Regulations

During the past six months, Three Angels Farms trucks have been involved in two trucking accidents involving fatigued or disqualified drivers and poorly maintained vehicles. Following the second accident, the Tennessee FMCSA Division Office conducted a compliance review of the trucking company, revealing widespread regulatory violations that “demonstrate a continuing and flagrant disregard for compliance with the FMCSRs.” Not only are the three drivers employed by Three Angels Farms not qualified to operate a commercial vehicle, but the company has also continued to operate commercial vehicles in interstate commerce without adhering to pre-employment drug testing regulations; without an adequate vehicle maintenance program; without adhering to hours of service, log, and records of duty status requirements; and with insufficient oversight of its drivers and their qualifications.

    Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

    I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!

    After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
