Dollar, Burns & Becker attorney Jeff Burns recently attended the installation of a montage dedicated to truck crash victims at the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) offices in the U.S. Department of Transportation Building located in Washington, D.C. The montage of photos was presented by the Truck Safety Coalition to the FMCSA in recognition of the importance of truck safety and victims' rights.
Mr. Burns said, "It is our hope that this montage will serve as a constant reminder that, every day, more victims are dying in truck crashes. Hopefully, this symbolizes a renewed focus on the urgent need to take affirmative steps to save lives and on the constant need for vigilance in the promotion of truck safety by the FMCSA."
