Truck Accidents

Unfortunately, truck accidents involving commercial vehicles are all too common and they can leave victims paying the price in the form of catastrophic injuries. Trying to put your life back together after a serious trucking accident can seem overwhelming, particularly if you have sustained severe injuries. If you or someone you know has recently been injured or in the event that you have lost a loved one due to an accident involving a commercial truck, you may be able to hold the truck driver or the trucking company financially responsible. Consulting with an experienced trucking accident lawyer in Florida is strongly recommended as soon as possible.

Common Causes of Trucking Accidents

Truck drivers and the companies that employ them are responsible for maintaining safety as a top priority on the road at all times. There are many state and federal regulations governing how and when drivers can operate a vehicle. Furthermore, a trucking company is also responsible for appropriately training all of their employees to handle the truck safely in all circumstances. Unfortunately, this does not always happen and it can be the victims who ultimately pay the price in the event that an accident happens. There are many different reckless and negligent actions that can occur that compromise the life of a victim. Some of the most common causes of trucking accidents include:

  • Reckless driving, such as speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Drowsy driving
  • Drunk driving

No matter how the accident happened, a trucking accident victim may be able to pursue damages via a personal injury claim. There’s no doubt that you’ll have questions about your rights going forward in such a situation, but an experienced lawyer can help you with this process. A Stuart trucking accident lawyer can help you with these complicated questions about liability and your next steps as an accident victim.

Common Trucking Accident Injuries

Injuries for a trucking accident victim can run the gamut from minor cuts and scrapes to being significantly painful injuries like spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries. The costs and the commitment required to recover from an injury like this can seem nearly impossible to manage for a victim. Some of the most common injuries include:

  • Lacerations
  • Cuts
  • Burns

  • Broken bones
  • Internal organ damage
  • Head injuries
  • Whiplash

Trucking accidents can be extremely complex from a legal perspective as they may involve multiple liable parties.
