Causes of Car vs. Truck Accidents

Car and truck accidents in southern Florida occur for a variety of reasons. In many instances, car accidents happen because of another driver’s negligence. For example, the other driver might have been speeding or violating some other rule of the road, such as by running a stop sign, yield sign, or red traffic light. At other times, car operators might be engaging in distracted driving, or they might be operating their vehicles while they are under the illegal influence of alcohol or drugs.

The drivers of large trucks, big rigs, and 18-wheelers can be negligent in the same ways that car operators are negligent. However, trucking companies can also share in some or all of the responsibility for a truck accident. For example, a trucking company might hire or retain a driver who is experienced or who has a track record of prior moving violations.

Filing a Personal Injury Claim After a South Florida Car or Truck Accident

If you have suffered one or more injuries, such as a fracture, soft tissue injury, or head injury as a result of a South Florida car or truck accident, you might be able to file a personal injury claim. Under the Florida no-fault statute, you will first need to turn to your own insurance company for coverage. However, if you suffered a serious injury, you might be eligible to file a claim against the other driver’s motor vehicle insurance company.

If you are involved in a car accident, for example, you could pursue a claim with the insurance company for the at-fault driver. In the case of a truck accident, you might be able to file a claim against the negligent truck driver and/or the trucking company that employs the negligent driver. A knowledgeable and experienced South Florida car vs. truck accident lawyer will be able to file the necessary claims or lawsuits on your behalf in your personal injury case.
