Truck Accident Attorney Stuart, FL
Common Causes of Trucking Accidents
Truck drivers and the companies that employ them are responsible for maintaining safety as a top priority on the road at all times. There are many state and federal regulations governing how and when drivers can operate a vehicle. Furthermore, a trucking company is also responsible for appropriately training all of their employees to handle the truck safely in all circumstances. Unfortunately, this does not always happen and it can be the victims who ultimately pay the price in the event that an accident happens. There are many different reckless and negligent actions that can occur that compromise the life of a victim. Some of the most common causes of trucking accidents include:
- Reckless driving, such as speeding
- Distracted driving
- Drowsy driving
- Drunk driving
No matter how the accident happened, a trucking accident victim may be able to pursue damages via a personal injury claim. There’s no doubt that you’ll have questions about your rights going forward in such a situation, but an experienced lawyer can help you with this process. A Stuart trucking accident lawyer can help you with these complicated questions about liability and your next steps as an accident victim.

Common Trucking Accident Injuries
Injuries for a trucking accident victim can run the gamut from minor cuts and scrapes to being significantly painful injuries like spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries. The costs and the commitment required to recover from an injury like this can seem nearly impossible to manage for a victim. Some of the most common injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Head injuries
Trucking accidents can be extremely complex from a legal perspective as they may involve multiple liable parties. For example, the truck driving company may be responsible for improperly training the driver, but the driver may also have some liability for the actions he or she did or did not do that led to the accident. Consulting with a dedicated lawyer as soon as possible after the accident occurs is the best way to understand all of your rights and determine your next steps.
