Interplay of state and federal weight restrictions can be particularly tricky issues for companies who transport products over state lines, as federal restrictions can differ from state laws. We have successfully represented clients in matters where trailers were loaded at the higher state law weight limits and an accident occurred on a restricted access federal highway. While drivers were required to operate only on state roads when loaded above the federal limit, discovery after a catastrophic accident revealed routine non-compliance with this requirement for the convenience of individual drivers. We have handled similar matters in both Prince George County, Virginia and the City of Richmond.
