West Palm Beach Truck Accident Lawyer

Why do you need an experienced truck accident lawyer if you or a loved one have been injured in a truck accident? Quite simply, accidents between large trucks and personal cars are very different from car on car accidents. They are more devastating – and often deadly — due to the huge weight difference between the vehicles. Information provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicates that, in a single year, 74,000 people were injured in accidents involving large trucks. That same year saw 3,380 people killed in accidents involving large trucks. While nearly one-fourth of those injured were truck drivers or their passengers, more than three-fourths of those injured were the occupants of other vehicles. The grim reality is that innocent victims are frequently injured or killed in accidents involving large trucks. Trucking companies know their exposure is high, so they retain very experienced defense lawyers to begin preparing their defense literally within hours after a truck accident occurs. You need your own experienced West Palm Beach truck accident lawyer to combat them.

Why You Need a Truck Accident Law Firm

Another reason for needing an experienced truck accident lawyer is that trucking accidents are more complex than other motor vehicle accidents. Finding the exact cause of a trucking accident frequently necessitates the use of trained experts who can scientifically reconstruct the accident. Furthermore, special rules apply to large commercial trucks. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has promulgated rules governing truck drivers and trucking companies. These rules govern a wide variety of areas including the qualifications and training of truck drivers, as well as a truck driver’s hours of service. The rules are meant to make sure that truck drivers are properly trained and rested when behind the wheel. Sadly, the rules are frequently broken. Trucking accidents often occur due to driver fatigue, inattention, careless driving, speeding, defective equipment, unsecured loads, alcohol and drug use, as well as improper maintenance and inspection of vehicles. Sometimes, it is the trucking company that does not provide adequate training to its drivers. Often, the trucking company places unrealistic expectations and schedules on its drivers, leading to lack of sleep, fatigue, and erratic driving by its drivers.
