Boynton Beach Truck Accident Lawyer
If truck drivers and commercial carriers are negligent in the operation of their vehicles, serious accidents can happen. These accidents can cause significant damage to other vehicles as well as serious injuries to other drivers and passengers. Drivers of commercial trucks are subject to special licensing requirements and must exhibit reasonable care when on the road. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, considering the frequency of commercial carrier accidents. If you have been injured by a commercial carrier or truck driver, the commercial carrier accident attorneys at Wolf & Pravato can help you to understand your legal options and seek justice.
Who Can Be Held Liable in a Commercial Truck Accident Claim?
Accidents involving commercial trucks can be particularly devastating because of the immense size and weight of the vehicles involved. These kinds of accidents could be caused from not only a collision, but also from debris or cargo flying from a truck. Either way, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and property damage after truck or commercial carrier accidents.
It’s crucial that you contact a truck accident attorney due to the fact that these accident cases come with complex legal issues. Determining liability can be complicated because that can be several parties responsible when a commercial carrier is involved. While truck drivers can certainly be named in truck accident lawsuits, the driver may not have enough insurance to cover your damages. However, the trucking company can be held responsible for a negligent truck driver through vicarious liability for the negligent actions of the employee, or the trucking company’s own negligence if the employer failed to properly screen the driver or didn’t that reasonable safety precautions. The trucking company is also more likely to have more resources than the driver, and therefore may have adequate insurance to cover your damages.
Boynton Beach accident cases involving commercial carriers can also be complicated when the driver or trucking company is located out-of-state. This can make finding the defendant, interfacing with the insurance companies and filing truck accident lawsuits more complicated.
