The presence of commercial trucks poses a risk of catastrophic accidents, and help from an Apopka, FL truck accident lawyer after a crash is strongly advised. All it takes is for the truck driver to make one wrong move and it can cause a devastating accident. Commercial trucks and 18-wheelers are not just larger, but greatly heavier than the standard passenger vehicle. The odds of sustaining severe injury is much higher when a commercial truck is involved. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident like this, please reach out to Presser Law, P.A. as soon as possible. It’s important that you have representation as your claim is being handled and a settlement is negotiated. All too often we have seen victims get taken advantage of by opposing parties and insurance companies. We firmly believe that victims deserve justice and fair compensation.
The main reason why truck collisions are so dangerous is due to their immense size. In fact, big rigs can weigh upwards of 80,000 pounds by federal law (sometimes more with special permits). By comparison, an everyday passenger vehicle weighs around 3,000-4,000 pounds. For this reason, it is often those in the passenger vehicle that tend to suffer the worst injuries. Other factors of truck accidents can be related to cargo falling on the road, multi-vehicle pileups, overloaded truck bed, poor truck maintenance, and truck driver fatigue. An Apopka truck accident lawyer can investigate the accident further and assess responsible parties, contributing factors, and how much your maximum settlement would be based on what you went through. While you may initially think that the truck driver is automatically at fault, there is a chance that other parties share liability too. For instance, the trucking company may have failed to train a driver properly before they were allowed to take routes. Or, a part manufacturer may have created a faulty product which malfunctioned while the truck was in motion. Because of how complex truck accidents can become, we always suggest that people reach out for a consultation. Then you will know what your options are in seeking compensation and what your claim value is worth.
The aftermath of an accident involving a commercial truck can be overwhelming, especially if many people were seriously hurt. At Presser Law, P.A., it is our duty to help victims during some of the most difficult periods of their life. We can understand the anguish that victims and families alike may endure because someone else was negligent or careless. An Apopka truck accident lawyer can help identify responsible parties, perform investigations, handle the legal paperwork, speak with insurance companies, and ultimately represent your side. There are so many factors and potential liable parties when it comes to truck accidents, so we suggest getting a consultation as soon as you can. We are ready to come to your aid.
