West Palm Beach Truck Accident Attorney

Negligence behind the wheel or negligence in the maintenance of commercial trucks can lead to serious accidents. Accidents of this nature can result in significant damage to other vehicles on the road, particularly to much smaller passenger cars. Commercial truck drivers must comply with special licensing requirements and are required to exhibit reasonable care when on the road. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

If you have been injured due to the negligence, carelessness or recklessness of a commercial carrier or truck driver, speak with the West Palm Beach truck accident attorneys at Wolf & Pravato as soon as possible. We have handled many lawsuits involving large commercial trucks and we can help you pursue all damages incurred from a commercial carrier or trucking accident.

Who Can Be Held Liable in a Commercial Carrier Accident Lawsuit?

Accidents involving commercial trucks can be devastating because of the sheer size and weight of the vehicles involved. These kinds of accidents could be caused from not only a collision, but also from debris flying from a truck or some kind of mechanical failure. Regardless of what caused the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and property damage if it can be proven that negligence was involved.

Commercial trucking companies and the insurance companies that represent them can be difficult to work with after an accident. A West Palm Beach truck accident attorney from Wolf & Pravato can deal with them for you. One major issue is determining who should be held responsible for the accident. While truck drivers can be named in commercial truck accident lawsuits, the driver may not have enough insurance. However, the trucking company will likely have more financial resources, and can be responsible for the actions of a negligent truck driver under two legal theories:

  • vicarious liability for employee actions; and
  • negligence if the employer failed to properly screen the driver, set unreasonable schedules or didn’t have reasonable safety measures in place.

West Palm Beach accident cases that involve commercial trucks and carriers can become complex if the driver or trucking company is located out-of-state. This makes finding the appropriate defendant more difficult, and interfacing with the insurance companies and filing truck accident lawsuits more challenging. Regardless of the challenges that can be present when bringing a commercial carrier lawsuit, we have successfully obtained compensation for plaintiffs injured in accidents involving large trucks from both Florida and out-of-state drivers and the trucking companies that employ them.

Trucking accidents can be settled either in or out of court. The attorneys from Wolf & Pravato are experienced negotiators, but we won’t hesitate to go to trial to get the compensation you deserve for your losses. You can count on us to help you to gather the evidence you need to prove that the driver and/or trucking company should be held responsible for your accident.

What Damages Can I Receive After a Commercial Carrier Accident?

After we prove the cause of your accident, as well as the extent of your injuries, our attorneys will work toward getting you compensation for your:

  • medical bills;
  • lost wages;
  • physical/emotional pain and suffering;
  • wrongful death damages; and
  • any other losses as a result of the accident.
