Florida Fatal Truck Accident Attorney
In contrast to car and other motor vehicle accidents, accidents involving 18-wheelers and other commercial trucks have a much greater likelihood of resulting in catastrophic and fatal injuries for their victims. This is especially true for the drivers and passengers of smaller vehicles that offer much less protection than large commercial trucks. For the families of truck accident victims, pursuing compensation is critical for the recovery process.
At the law firm of Ferrer Shane, our experienced lawyers provide families with a source of comfort and representation during the legal claim process. We will help your family file a claim to obtain monetary compensation that you need to pay for past medical bills, present expenses and future needs. We will thoroughly investigate the accident and pursue legal action against the truck driver or the company responsible for your tragic loss.
Contact our firm, Ferrer Shane, as soon as possible after a fatal truck accident to learn more about our wrongful death claims representation. Call toll free in Miami at 888-609-5947.
Common Causes of Fatal Truck Accidents
Florida state and federal laws are in place to keep drivers safe on the road, but unfortunately, many truck drivers and trucking companies intentionally disregard these laws in favor of convenience or profits. Common violations and other causes of fatal truck accidents may include:
- Inadequate driver training
- Driver fatigue, caused by working too many hours or a lack of sleep
- Aggressive or careless driving
- Unrealistic schedules
- Insufficient vehicle maintenance
- Improper loading
- Semi-truck rollovers
Some drivers and trucking companies, in order to avoid liability, will forge log books and other documents that show how many hours a driver has been on- and off-duty or how often the vehicle was maintained. Our firm will get started investigating your case as soon as possible to ensure that we know the facts of the case and that we can present your claim for compensation promptly.
