How Did The Accident That Injured You Happen?
The investigation of commercial trucking accidents is on an entirely different level than passenger car accidents. The high level of liability imposed on trucking companies compels them to implement immediate investigation procedures and control of the accident scene. Our attorneys go to work immediately talking to witnesses, reviewing police reports, working with accident reconstruction experts and consulting with vehicle engineers. Our detailed investigation may reveal negligence by the truck driver, trucking company and others that contributed to the trucking accident:
- Truck driver fatigue caused by too many hours on the road
- Speeding to meet corporate expectations
- Alcohol or drug use, including using drugs to stay awake
- Poor maintenance or shoddy repairs
- Defective or dangerous truck parts
- History of hiring reckless drivers or drivers with a criminal or driving record
- Other negligence or defects
Investigation of a tractor-trailer accident or commercial trucking accident by your dedicated legal team should commence as soon as possible. Therefore, if you or a loved one has been involved in a serious truck accident in Florida, don’t wait.
