Truck Accident Cases Our Port St. Lucie Truck Accident Lawyer Handles
Due to the dangers that enormous trucks can cause, a truck driver’s failure to exercise reasonable caution and care when operating these vehicles can place the safety of innocent road users at risk. The skilled legal team of Rosenthal, Levy, Simon & Sosa has the resources and experience to represent injured clients in truck accident cases involving:
Truck Driver Negligence or Error
Truckers must know how to drive their trucks safely and follow all the traffic laws. Errors are inexcusable when driving a massive and potentially life-threatening motor vehicle. Truck drivers who are unwilling or incapable of placing people’s safety first may be held liable for truck crashes resulting from error or negligence, such as speeding, aggressive driving, running red lights, distracted driving, and driving with unsecured or overweight cargo, among many others.
Drugged or Drunk Truck Drivers
Crashes involving a semi-truck or 18-wheeler vs. another motor vehicle can prove catastrophic, usually leaving the other driver with severe or potentially deadly injuries. Driving while drunk or under the influence of drugs is a crime that puts innocent people’s lives in serious danger. Truckers who choose to drink or take drugs and then drive must be held liable for their negligent actions.
Trucking Company Negligence
All trucking companies are responsible for making sure that their trucks and drivers are safe to ensure the safety of all the road users they share the roadways with. Critical errors during the training, hiring, scheduling work hours, and cargo loading processes may place a trucker who isn’t capable of driving a truck safely.
Likewise, failure to properly inspect and conduct regular maintenance on their vehicles can place unsafe trucks on the road. These negligent actions can result in innocent people suffering long-lasting, permanent, or life-altering injuries.
Truck Malfunction or Defects
When big commercial trucks suffer a defect while on the roadway, the trucker might not be able to safely respond and prevent a crash. In most cases, such crashes cause devastating consequences, as semi-trucks and 18-wheelers dominate other motor vehicles on the roadway. If a crash results from a defective truck or truck component, the injured party may hold the designer or manufacturer liable for their damages.
