Due to their large size and heavy loads, truck accidents can be deadly. In 2013, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA) Traffic Safety Facts, 342,000 large trucks were involved in traffic crashes across the nation. Fatalities numbered 3,964 and injuries numbered 95,000. These statistics are staggering, making it all the more important for you to seek help.
Some common causes of truck accidents include:
These cases can rarely be settled simply and are often caused by a number of issues. Large trucking companies and corporations hire extensive legal defense firms who specialize in protecting themselves and their fleets from being held responsible for injury.
In order to effectively determine who is at fault, it is important to retain the guidance and representation of a capable Clearwater truck accident lawyer. During the case, Attorney Caulfield will exhaustively investigate the circumstances leading to the accident, and craft a case that meets your individual needs.
Though the amount of hours truckers are allowed to drive is federally regulated, truckers are still expected to keep certain schedules. Often this leads truck drivers to skip sleep, cut corners in maintenance, or speed in order to fulfill their jobs on time. Though these factors may all be present, you should not have to pay for another’s reckless actions.
