Orlando Truck Accident Attorney
A car typically weighs around two tons, while a fully loaded 18-wheeler or commercial truck can weigh more than 40 tons. This disparity in size increases the odds that a commercial truck will cause catastrophic damage to any vehicle or person that comes into contact with it. From a legal standpoint, truck accidents are different than car crashes. At LaBar & Adams, P.A., our attorneys are prepared to deal with the differences.
The law requires commercial trucks to carry different types of insurance than passenger cars. In most cases, commercial trucks carry higher amounts and limits than cars. As a result, some insurance companies go to great lengths to limit their damages from the very beginning. These insurance companies are going to fight to limit your financial recovery.
Our experienced truck accident attorneys will fully investigate every part of your claim. If the opposing party unfairly denies liability, we will demonstrate how they were at fault.
Truck Accident – Possible Causes
Depending on the facts, the owner of the truck, the owner of the trailer and the owner of the goods may be different. Each of these companies may share liability for the injuries you sustained during the accident. There may also be maintenance issues or product liability issues . Our experienced truck accident lawyers can sort through the complex issues in order to help you get justice against every responsible party.
Truck crashes can be complex and can be caused by a multitude of issues, including:
- Driver training and licensing issues
- Improper care and maintenance of the truck
- Mechanical defects or failures (breaks, tires, etc.)
- Truck driver errors
- Truck driver fatigue
- Violation of Federal and/or State trucking laws
Our attorneys will research the specific circumstances of the truck accident you were involved in to identify who is(are) liable for the injuries you and/or your family suffered during the accident.
