TRUCK ACCIDENT LAWYER IN ORLANDO
RECOVER DAMAGES AFTER A TRUCK ACCIDENT
Commercial truck drivers are held to a very high standard when it comes to the operation of their vehicles. When loaded to capacity, a commercial truck can weigh as much as 40 tons. Any smaller vehicle that is hit by such a large and heavy truck, even at low speeds, is likely to suffer serious damage. Negligent truck drivers who talk on the phone or text while driving, eat while driving, or fall asleep at the wheel can cause serious personal injury or wrongful death for the driver and passengers of another vehicle.
CAUSES OF TRUCK ACCIDENTS
Truck driver negligence is the leading cause of trucking accidents, although employer negligence can also play a large part in an accident. Driver distraction can cause a trucker to rear end another vehicle or run a red light and cause a T-bone accident. Failure to comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s trucking regulations for equipment could result in an underride accident. Poor truck maintenance could result in brake failure and a runaway truck accident.
All of these and other truck accidents are likely to result in serious or catastrophic injury. Common injuries include whiplash, seat belt injuries, air bag injuries, head injuries, broken bones, brain injury, and back injuries. Do not allow a negligent truck driver or trucking company get away without compensating you for your damages. An Orlando personal injury lawyer from our firm can help you file a claim.
