Federal Truck Driver Rules and Regulations

By on June 18, 2016

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is an agency of the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) that regulates the trucking and busing industries. For a company or a person to operate a commercial motor vehicle for interstate commerce, they must be licensed by the FMCSA and abide by FMCSA rules.

The FMCSA’s primary mission is to reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving large trucks and buses. Among the elements of the trucking and busing industries that the agency regulates are the maximum weight a commercial motor vehicle can weigh, the physical requirements for truck drivers, the amount of consecutive hours a driver can drive, and the amount of time drivers must take off between shifts, and much more.

Farah & Farah Investigating Mutual Fund Negligence Claims

By on June 2, 2016

Playing the stock market can be not only confusing, but dangerous to people inexperienced with investing. This is why people put a lot of trust in financial firms when investing their hard-earned money. When a person takes the time to research and meet with an investment firm they feel comfortable handing their money over to, a meaningful relationship is built.

Unfortunately, some firms act in ways that undermine and do permanent damage to a person’s financial future. This is currently the situation with T. Rowe Price, one of the largest investment firms in the nation. Farah & Farah is currently investigating a loss of nearly $200 million suffered by people investing in the following mutual funds: Read the rest »

Runaway Jury Awards are a Myth: Center for Justice & Democracy

By on September 19, 2011

Tort reform. You’ve heard the term thrown out as something that is needed to cut down on so-called “frivolous” lawsuits. Generally industries or medical practices that do not want to be regulated champion tort reform as a way to fix the economy and reduce health care costs. These industries and medical societies have a lot of money to conduct very effective campaigns that encourage everyone to be cynical about the law and lawyers.

After all, it is a right under the Seventh Amendment to the Constitution to take our grievance to a jury as a way to right a wrong. Lawsuits hold companies accountable that harm average consumers and they serve as a deterrent to reckless and negligent behavior. Read the rest »

By Eddie Farah on June 13, 2008

It was one of the most horrible trucking accidents this area can
remember.

On January 25, 2006, a tractor-trailer driver reportedly fell asleep behind the wheel and drove his trailer into a car full of Lake Butler children waiting for a school bus.

Jacksonville’s Dubious Distinction

By Eddie Farah on June 7, 2008

Jacksonville is recognizing a dubious distinction.

The city’s infant mortality rate tops all of Florida.  Within the black community, the numbers are nearly twice that of whites, according to findings by the Jacksonville Community Council Inc.

In 2006, 130 infants died before their first birthday in Jacksonville.  The mortality rate overall in the city is 9.5% with the rate for whites 7.2% and for blacks 12.7% in 2006.

“Jacksonville has the highest rate in the state,” said Helen Jackson who is the JCCI Board of Directors President. “This is not something we want to be known for.” Read the rest »
