We Handle All Types of Semi-Truck Accidents
A semi-truck accident can cause widespread damage and involve multiple vehicles. Identifying the at-fault party can be difficult at best. With the help of an attorney, you may be able to determine how the accident happened and who was at fault. The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine take on a wide range of trucking accident cases including:
- Distracted driving
- Reckless driving
- Manufacturer defect
- Poor road conditions
- Uneven loads
- Hazardous materials
When truck drivers or trucking companies fail to practice reasonable care on the highway, the results can be devastating. Our team is prepared to take on the trucking companies and help seek the compensation you deserve.
Who Is At Fault for Your Injuries?
Florida state statutes 316.515 dictate how drivers and trucking companies should operate. When companies fail to follow the laws, accidents happen. Negligent parties in a semi-truck accident may include:
Manufacturers and truck designers are responsible for building commercial vehicles that are safe and dependable. A poor design or defect can cause a driver to lose control of the truck and collide with another driver or object. The manufacturer is responsible for these types of accidents.
The Trucking Company
Trucking companies must ensure that trucks are safe to drive by maintaining their fleet and training their drivers. Companies must adhere to strict federal and state regulations in all areas of operation. Failure to follow the laws has serious consequences, including accidents that lead to injury or fatality.
The Loading Crew
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has strict laws regarding the size of semi-trucks and the way cargo is loaded onto the truck. A semi-truck carrying toxic chemicals or hazardous materials must be able to keep the materials safe even in an accident. If the loading crew did not properly secure the cargo, the truck can become unstable, or the cargo can spill on to the road.
The Truck Driver
Truck drivers must undergo extensive training so that they can operate the truck and navigate through a difficult situation. A truck driver who is tired, distracted, or drunk may have caused the accident that led to your injuries. Therefore, the driver and the trucking company may be liable for your damages.
Our attorneys can investigate your accident to determine how the accident occurred and which parties are responsible. Call 1-800-747-3733 for a free consultation. Let a Boca Raton semi-truck lawyer hold the guilty party responsible for your damages.
How Much Is Your Personal Injury Case Worth?
The value of your case depends on several factors, including who was at fault, the circumstances of the crash, and how the accident impacted your life. The insurance company may try to settle quickly with a low offer. However, you do not have to accept it. Our law firm can explore all the ways that the accident affected you and determine what your case is worth.
Damages in a personal injury case may include:
- Medical treatment
- Ongoing care
- Disability or disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Loss of consortium
If a loved one was killed due to driver negligence, your family may be eligible to receive compensation for burial expenses, lost wages, or medical bills. Our team can fight for a fair settlement and compensation based on the extent of your losses.
