Why Trucking Companies Are So Often Responsible for Individual Accidents
Trucking companies are often held liable for trucking accidents because they either fail to properly maintain their vehicles and/or they encourage their drivers to operate their trucks under dangerous conditions. For example, federal safety regulations dictate how often truck operators must rest in order to better ensure that fatigue doesn’t contribute to accident rates. However, in pursuit of a more robust “bottom line,” some companies encourage their drivers to push the boundaries of these regulations. When such behavior occurs and accidents happen as a result, trucking companies may be held liable for their choices.
Legal Assistance Is Available
Try not to make any assumptions about your case before you meet with the experienced Florida legal team at The Law Office of Eric H. Luckman, P.A. Instead, focus on what you can do to prepare for your confidential, “strings-free” consultation. Gather a copy of the police report, your insurance information, the names and contact information of any witnesses to the crash, any photos or video you may have taken at the scene, discharge orders from your visits to the E.R. and followup care, etc. Additionally, if you haven’t already done so, take a little time to record your memories of the crash, either on paper or via an audio or video platform. These recollections can be very helpful to both you and our team over time in the event that your memories understandably start to fade and/or refocus.
All of these preparations will help our team determine who may have been at-fault for your crash, who may be held responsible for your injuries, and what legal options are available to you at this time. As the consultation process is both a confidential and no-obligation setting, you have nothing to lose by exploring your options. On the contrary, you likely have much to gain by clarifying your situation so that you can make an informed decision about how you want to proceed. If you haven’t already done so, please schedule a consultation with our firm’s Lake Worth, FL truck accident lawyer; we look forward to speaking with you.
