Common Causes of Trucking Accidents

Our Florida law firm understands the importance of looking into all the facts of your case to determine who is responsible for your injuries. Many truck drivers are under great pressure to deliver their goods quickly and may be tempted to violate safe trucking rules. At other times, the trucking company or manufacturer may be liable for poor maintenance or other issues.

Our lawyer will investigate the details of your situation and help determine whether or not any of these problems may have contributed to your accident:

  • Alcohol use or drug use
  • Driver fatigue
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Incorrect loading
  • Faulty brakes or equipment failure
  • Improper training
  • Logbook violations
  • Improper hazard warnings
