Florida Truck Accident Lawyers
Fighting for the Severely Injury Since 1998
If you or a loved one was involved in a collision with a commercial truck (for example, a semi-truck or tractor-trailer), there are some things you must know. These collisions are not like fender-benders or rear-end collisions. Collisions with commercial vehicles cause significant property damage and personal injuries. Loss of life is not uncommon.
If a person is lucky enough to survive, they are usually facing a long road ahead with many doctor visits, therapy visits, and, in some cases, a lifetime of ongoing care. Obviously, the injured party is not going through this trauma alone; their family is feeling the effects of the accident, as well. Not only are there physical effects, but there are serious emotional and financial impacts, which are often felt by everyone.
After a truck accident, you need an experienced team on your side. When you hire The Dellutri Law Group, PA to represent you and your family, we immediately take action on the legal issues so you and your family can begin the healing process. We have an experienced team in place, ready to start investigating. Trust us, the trucking insurance company will dispatch a team of investigators to the scene of the accident to start gathering as much evidence as they can; why shouldn't you?
What Makes Commercial Vehicle Accidents Different?
All traffic collisions present unique legal issues. However, accidents involving commercial vehicles and tractor-trailers present their own set of unique processes, procedures, and legal issues.
For one thing, commercial vehicles may be governed by different laws, depending on what state you are in. For more information on specific truck accident laws and regulations, visit the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s website or the Department of Transportation’s website.
What Are Some Common Causes of Truck Accidents?
Semi-truck and tractor-trailer collisions may result from any number of factors, including negligence or even unlawful behavior.
Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:
- Pressuring truck drivers to meet unrealistic schedules/quotas, leading to speeding or hours-of-service violations
- Trucking companies pressuring truck drivers to text while driving
- Failure to properly maintain the commercial vehicle, either on the part of the truck driver, trucking company, or another party
- A work environment that encourages truck drivers to falsify their logbooks
- Truck driver errors/negligence
- Distracted driving
- Driving while intoxicated/under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Failure to lock down cargo properly
- Overloading trucks with cargo, causing drivers to lose control of their vehicles
