Large Truck and Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Large Truck and Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Because of their possibility of creating catastrophic injuries, commercial vehicles tend to carry better insurance coverage than most personal vehicles.

Some of the factors to consider are:

Driver Fatigue:

In our experience, driver fatigue is the most dangerous factor after distraction and being impaired.  Driver fatigue, like DUI and texting, can impair judgment, vision, coordination, reaction time or worse of all…falling asleep at the wheel.

Negligent Maintenance:

Commercial vehicles need to be inspected frequently and an experienced lawyer needs to review the maintenance records in order to determine if negligent maintenance was the cause of the accident in order to properly prosecute your claim.  We look at the tires for proper pressure, brake failure, and other factors.

Aggressive Driving

It’s far too often that we see a commercial driver speeding and trying to weave his way through traffic at a high speed. These can cause some of the most horrific accidents due to the size and weight of the commercial vehicle.

Overloaded Trucks or Trailers

Overloading or improperly loading a truck or trailer can cause a variety of hazards like diminished braking ability and shifting loads.

If you have been injured by a truck driver, call a Tampa Lawyer today who can help.
