Boca Raton Truck Accident Lawyer
Serving Florida from our Boca Raton Office
Semi-trucks and commercial trucks are significantly larger and heavier than a passenger vehicle. When they collide with a vehicle, motorcycle or another commercial vehicle, the chances of someone walking away from that truck accident unharmed are minimal.
The size and the speed of commercial trucks make truck accidents one of the most catastrophic types of accidents in the United States. Most of these accidents result in severe injuries, and many cause death.
Do Not Accept a Settlement without an Attorney
Trucking companies and their insurance companies are quick to settle in truck accident cases, but they aim to pay you as little as possible. They might take advantage of the fact that you are suffering, and they know you have medical costs and repair costs hanging over your head that you need to rectify.
They also know that you won’t have the time or experience to compute just how much money you’ll need to cover everything, especially in the long-term.
With an experienced truck accident attorney by your side, you can make sure that you are not short changed by the insurance companies and be sure that the right parties are held responsible.
What Causes Truck Accidents?
To determine fault, the attorneys at Glotzer & Kobren will look at the details of the accident. The negligent party is not always the driver of the truck, and the accident’s blame could involve multiple parties.
Some common causes of truck accidents in the U.S. include:
- Defective Products
- Driver Fatigue or Distracted Driving
- Improper Loads
- Speeding or Reckless Driving
- Defective or Poor Road Conditions
- Negligence by Other Drivers on the Road
- Driving Under the Influence
- Improper Maintenance
Determining fault in a truck accident requires a skilled attorney because often there is more than one party held accountable for a trucking accident.
For example, a driver may have physically caused the accident, but his employer was also to blame because he forced his driver to stay on the road for 72 hours straight in order to meet a deadline, despite the 14-hour law.
Or, in another case, it could be the company that loaded the freight on the truck that is held partially to blame, by causing the truck to tip over and crash into another vehicle by loading the truck improperly.
By having a Florida truck accident lawyers represent you in your case, you can ensure that the responsible party compensates you for your injuries.
Once the fault is determined, Glotzer & Kobren will make sure that the responsible party or parties are held accountable for their actions. Whether it is the truck driver, their employer or even the company that maintains the truck, we will make sure you receive the compensation you are entitled to from the responsible party.
