An accident involving garbage trucks, dump trucks, tractor-trailers, buses or other large, heavy commercial vehicles can result in serious injuries for the occupants of passenger vehicles. In a crash between a truck that weighs tens of thousands of pounds and a car weighing 3,000 pounds, the car is likely to have extensive damage or even be destroyed. Even though federal regulators continue to update safety measures, the causes of truck accidents persist. These include:
- Fatigued or overworked truck drivers
- Lack of proper training
- Negligent actions
- Equipment or mechanical failure, such as bad brakes
- Shifting loads or overloading
- Aggressive driving
- Lack of proper truck maintenance
How our Gainesville truck accident lawyers can help.
Accident cases involving commercial carriers can be much more complex than other types of vehicular accidents. There may be multiple parties that are liable, which can include the company that owns the truck, another company that owns and/or loaded the freight, the truck driver, the company that trained, vetted, and/or hired the driver, and others. Motor carriers and the trucking industry are also strictly regulated by the federal government, so there is a different set of legal matters involved as well.
Navigating these complexities requires a skilled truck accident lawyer who has experience in negotiating with the insurance carriers of the various entities involved and who is well versed in the local, state, and federal regulations that govern the trucking industry. At Harrell & Harrell, P.A., we can counsel you at any stage of the insurance settlement process, including:
- During the initial discovery
- As your claim is being prepared
- After the presentation of your claim
- Throughout negotiations with insurance carriers
- Court-ordered mediation
- After a formal judicial proceeding
In addition to your free initial consultation to determine if you have a case, the Gainesville truck accident attorneys at Harrell & Harrell, P.A., will work with you on a contingency basis. That means you pay nothing to us up front to take your case; we only take our fees when we reach a successful settlement on your behalf.
