  • Truck Accident Lawsuits

    There are many contributing factors that can result in a truck accident and it is up to your attorney to discover which one to pursue in a lawsuit. The following are just a few lawsuits that can be filed in the wake of a truck accident:

    Negligence: Most truck accident lawsuits are pursued based on the assumption that a driver’s behavior resulted in the victim’s injuries and vehicle damage. Your attorney must prove that the truck driver or another party acted negligently, which resulted in an injury to you.

    Product Liability: In some cases, the manufacturer of the truck or one of its components, may be liable for injuries sustained in a truck accident if a defect contributed to the accident.

    Wrongful Death: If a loved one dies in a truck accident, Florida state law permits the surviving family to pursue a wrongful death suit to collect compensation for their loss.

  • Causes of Truck Accidents

    Truck accidents can cause serious injuries and fatalities to all involved. In order to protect all drivers on the road and prevent truck accidents, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration created mandatory guidelines for trucks, truck owners, and truck manufacturers. These regulations include maximum speed limits, time limits for drivers on the road, logging requirements, weight and loading limits, and the use of alcohol and drugs. Violations of these regulations can put a truck driver and other motorists at risk on the road. Some of these violations include:

    • Falsifying driving logs
    • Exceeding the maximum weight limit
    • Driving tired or under the influence
    • Failing to obey local traffic laws
    • Failing to stop at weigh stations
    • Operating with minimal truck driving training
    • Overloading or failing to load the truck and trailer properly
    • Failing to see other vehicles and parties on the roadway
    • Distracted driving
  • What Compensation Can Be Recovered?

    A truck accident may be eligible to recover damages for their losses, including:

    • Lost wages
    • Medical Expenses
    • Mental anguish
    • Pain and suffering
    • Funeral costs
  • How Can a Miami Truck Accident Attorney Help?

    If you seek compensation after a truck accident, it is important to retain an attorney who will conduct a thorough investigation on your behalf. Your attorney may collect evidence by interviewing witnesses, reviewing accident reports and photographs, investigating the trucking company and driver, examining truck maintenance reports, or re-creating the accident with the assistance of experts.

    Your attorney may also negotiate with your insurance company to help make sure that you don’t accept a low settlement offer. If negotiations are unsuccessful, your attorney may choose to file a lawsuit for damages against the negligent party that caused the crash. Finding the right attorney is important, especially when seeking compensation.

    Morgan & Morgan’s Miami truck accident attorneys have exceptional investigatory skills, extensive knowledge of Florida laws and regulations, and access to experts. We have a proven track record of recovering compensation for our clients after a truck accident.
