Trucking Accidents

Commercial trucks are everywhere; even the most cautious drivers can become the victim of an accident involving a commercial truck through no fault of their own. The weight of the truck alone can turn a simple rear end collision into a fatal crash. Our state of Florida is 3rd in semi/big-rig accidents with thousands of commercial vehicles passing through our communities everyday. These accidents and injuries are life altering for the people involved and we recognize the stress and worry they bring. We can help.

Knowing who is responsible for the accident is vital to a successful truck accident case.

Just like any other vehicle, trucks require routine maintenance and must be inspected prior to going out on the road, but even so according to the National Highway Safety Transportation Administration (NSHTA) big trucks/semi are involved in about 4,000 accident fatalities and over 100,000 injuries every year in the United States. The commercial truck accident attorneys at Falk & Falk Law know big rigs and semi-trucks can have a wide variety of problems that can cause a collision including improperly attached trailers, brake failures, overly worn tires, and improper load distribution.

While at the time of an accident all parties may not be known, the lawyers at Falk & Falk will ensure that that claims are made against all responsible parties. Possible negligent parties can include:

  • The driver
  • The company that owns the truck
  • The truck manufacturer
  • The truck loader
  • The brake manufacturer
  • The company responsible for the trucks maintenance

When a semi-truck causes an accident and your or your family are injured hire an attorney who is knowledgeable and determined: a lawyer who has the resources to build you a strong case.

Discover the underlying cause of your accident

While wide turning radius for these trucks is a frequent cause of accidents, and poor weight distribution can trigger these enormous vehicles to rollover, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA) that monitors trucking accidents, cites that driver error is 10 times more likely to be the cause of the crash than any other factor. Reasons for this include:
  • Distracted Driving (ie: cell phones)
  • Failure to watch blind sports
  • Unfamiliarity with the road
  • Drug and Alcohol Violations
  • Failing to Stop or Yield
  • Unfamiliarity with Route
  • Aggressive Driving
  • Health Issues
  • Inadequate vision
  • Violations of Hours
