We know, we’ve had the same thought – get away from the big truck on the road.
We’re talking about the large, eighteen-wheeler kind of trucks that have signs on them telling drivers to stay back a few hundred feet. While most of the time these trucks go by with no problem at all, sometimes accidents happen.
What if you are hurt in a large truck accident and it was someone else’s fault?
If you need a Hollywood truck accident attorney, the Dante Law Firm has a team standing by ready to help. We know this can be a confusing process, but we will make sure you are compensated fairly.
Those are just a few of the kinds of large trucks that travel Florida roadways.
The most common way that you usually hear about large truck accidents is usually with a tire blow out. Sometimes, it is just the tire that flies off into a vehicle, causing an accident. Other times, it causes the entire truck to lose control and crash, creating a potential mass casualty situation.
Why did the tire blow? Was it because the driver or company failed to regularly inspect the truck?
You see, most of the large trucks you see on the roadway are owned by a company. Whether large or small, the company should regularly inspect and maintain their trucks to prevent accidents. If they don’t, major problems could occur. We already discussed the tire problem, but if the engine or brakes fail, a driver may lose control of the truck.
Companies should be held liable if their trucks cause damage or injuries.
Driver should also follow all regulations and laws. This includes observing the amount of hours they are allowed to drive in a day to prevent them from falling asleep at the wheel.
This also means that the drivers should not drive impaired by alcohol or distracted by their phones or other devices.
When a large truck hits a passenger vehicle, it can cause massive damage and major injuries. Treatment after a collision with a large truck could end up costing you money, and not just with medical expenses.
What if you have to miss work?
What if you have a short or long-term disability?
