Review Any Settlement Offers With Your Attorney
The insurance company’s first offer may not cover all your losses. It might account for the immediate, short-term expenses and wage losses, but any settlement should fully account for long-term expenses, pain and suffering, and all losses associated with your injury.
Speak with a lawyer before signing anything from an insurance company or truck carrier. If you agree to a settlement offer, you may be unable to reopen the claim to seek further damages for long-term losses.

We Investigate the Causes of Steel Truck Accidents
Steel trucks are large, heavy vehicles. Careless driving can easily endanger other drivers and cause avoidable accidents. Unfortunately, many steel trucks accidents result from the driver’s negligence. Here are some ways that a steel truck driver can cause an accident.
Sometimes, steel truck drivers drive long distances to deliver on time. A driver operating on few hours of sleep and even shorter breaks may lose concentration on the road and cause an accident. Some truck drivers and carriers may violate hours of service rules that mandate rest time, so drivers are not impaired by fatigue.
Speeding, following other vehicles too closely, unsafe lane changes, and other reckless behavior endangers all who use the roads. Steel truck drivers who engage in this careless behavior can cause a severe accident.
Driving Under Influence (DUI)
Even though the authorities strictly outlaw intoxicated driving, some drivers ignore these rules and use alcohol and other drugs while on the road. Drugs and alcohol lead to impaired vision and judgment that leads to accidents.
Other causes of steel truck accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Lack of proper training on operating the steel truck
- Poor truck maintenance leading to mechanical failures
- Poor cargo handling
- Not adhering to safety precautions when driving in poor weather or on bad roads.
Our Tallahassee steel truck accident lawyers will retrieve and review all evidence pertaining to your case, and we may even work with expert witnesses to identify the cause of your accident. Our team can then pursue the liable parties for losses associated with the accident.
