  • What Are Some Common Causes of Truck Accidents?

    In Lakeland, some of the most common causes of truck accidents include but are not limited to driver fatigue, speeding, distracted driving, impaired driving, inadequate training, overloaded trucks, and mechanical failures. Other accidents may be caused by adverse weather, blind spots, reckless driving, tailgating, inadequate rest breaks, unfamiliar roads, and certain medical conditions.

    If we establish that negligence contributed to any of these accidents, we may be able to help you pursue the compensation you need and deserve to feel whole again.

  • Who Can Be Liable for a Truck Accident?

    In a truck accident, several parties can potentially be held liable for the incident. These parties include the truck's manufacturer, responsible for any defects in the vehicle, and the maintenance crew, who should ensure the truck's safety and roadworthiness. The company that employs the truck driver may also be responsible, especially if they hired an inexperienced driver, provided inadequate training, or violated driving hour regulations.
    The truck driver, too, can be at fault, particularly if they were negligent, violated traffic laws, or were under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The truck owner, especially in cases where the truck is leased, may face liability if they fail to maintain the vehicle properly or neglect record-keeping requirements.

  • What Evidence Can Be Used to Prove Liability in a Truck Accident?

    Proving liability in a truck accident relies on a range of evidence. This includes police reports, truck logbooks detailing driver activities, maintenance records, and data from event data recorders. Visual evidence like photos and videos, along with eyewitness testimonies, can also help reconstruct the accident. In some cases, especially where liability is disputed, expert analysis by accident reconstruction specialists can provide further insight.
