Wyoming Laws for Trucking Accidents
Wyoming, known for its extensive roadways and active transportation networks, has its unique set of regulations pertaining to trucking accidents. As certified attorneys in both Montana and Wyoming, it’s our job to be experts in the nuances of state trucking accident laws.
Oftentimes, trucking accidents in Wyoming are due to icy roads and high winds. These dangerous conditions lead to accidents on an already dangerous highway. For truckers and other drivers on the road, this can be treacherous.
This has led The Joint Transportation, Highways and Military Affairs Committee to sponsor a draft bill to create a misdemeanor for such a violation, punishable by a $2,500 fine and up to 30 days in jail. This is one example of how trucking laws, regulations, and potential fines shift the way tractor-trailer crashes are dealt with in the state of Wyoming. It is our job to stay on top of these changes and navigate the repercussions in the court room.
Montana Laws for Trucking Accidents
In Montana, trucking accidents have become a pressing concern, as evident from recent statistics. In 2021, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) recorded 816 large-truck accidents involving 877 vehicles, resulting in 31 fatalities and 265 injuries. The state’s fatality rate of 1.76 per 100 million vehicle miles traveled is notably 0.42 higher than the national average. The perilous roads for truck drivers in Montana include U.S. Highways 191 and 12, with the most treacherous section being Lolo Pass.
To address these challenges, Montana has established a comprehensive set of laws regulating commercial trucking and determining liability for accidents involving large trucks. These laws encompass various aspects, including driver qualifications, vehicle maintenance and inspection, hours of service, and insurance requirements.

Why Choose Stinson Law Group
At Stinson Law Group, we have a proven track record of handling trucking and tractor-trailer cases. Our experience and access to experts means we put everything we have into your legal proceedings.
A tractor-trailer often weighs in excess of 80,000 pounds. For comparison purposes, the Mother Of All Bombs (the “MOAB”) weighs only 22,600 pounds. With heavy truck traffic on I-80, I-25, I-90, and I-94, Wyoming and Montana residents suffer hundreds of truck crashes a year. Wyoming & Montana roads host a disproportionately high amount of tractor-trailer traffic for their mostly rural population.
For over two decades, Stinson Law Group has focused on tractor-trailer crash cases. We have handled death and serious injury truck crash cases across Wyoming and Montana. We know and understand the federal rules and regulations that trucking companies are supposed to follow to be safe and prevent death and harm to motorists on the road.
