The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has issued revised guidance on the use of the term “medical treatment” in the reporting of accidents. The revised guidance explains that an x-ray examination is a diagnostic procedure and should no longer be considered ‘‘medical treatment’’ in determining whether a crash should be included on a motor carrier’s accident register. This guidance is applicable as of February 25, 2022 and expires February 25, 2027.
The guidance may be found here: 2022-03997.pdf (www.govinfo.gov).
