Determining the Liable Party Or Parties
Our investigation will include examining all records about the truck driver, vehicle maintenance records, employers, and manufacturers. We might request cell phone records and other recorded information to assist us in determining the liable parties. Some of the primary causes of concrete truck accidents can include:
- Distracted driving
- Inexperienced drivers
- Use of drugs or alcohol
- Mechanical failures
Any of the above can be responsible for causing an accident. As the cause often points to the liable party, we will use the evidence we gather to connect the dots and pursue the person responsible.

Proving the Elements of Negligence
During our investigation, we will gather evidence about your accident. To prove negligence or recklessness, we must use the evidence to establish that your case meets the four elements of negligence:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
The truck operator had a duty of care to follow specific regulations and operate their vehicle safely. If they don’t, that is a breach of duty. If the breach of duty causes an accident (causation) and injury (damages), the four elements of negligence are present.

Concrete Truck Accidents Can Cause Severe Injuries
In addition to causing more severe injuries (making your case inherently more complex), concrete truck accidents can create a confusing trail in determining liability. There might be several entities sharing the responsibility for your accident.
A Tampa concrete truck accident attorney can sort out the complications for you. Some specific laws and regulations govern truck operation and safety in Florida. Our experience can guide you through the entire process, from your initial claim to a lawsuit if necessary.
In 2020, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reported 2,713 fatalities of passenger vehicle occupants involved in accidents with large trucks. The size and weight of a concrete truck make it an unfair opponent in a collision with a car. Occupants of passenger vehicles suffer 68 percent of all recorded deaths from this type of accident.
Types of Injuries from Concrete Truck Accidents
Truck accidents also account for a wide variety of severe injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Chest injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Soft tissue injuries and bruising
- Broken bones
- Paralysis, partial or complete
- Dismemberment (loss of a limb)
- Cuts, abrasions, and other injuries
In addition to physical injuries, a concrete truck accident can inflict psychological trauma. Our truck accident team will outline your options for compensation, taking into account all of your injuries.
Steps to Take After a Concrete Truck Accident
Following an accident, ensure the safety of all involved parties. Retreat to an area away from the accident scene if it is safe. If you have severe injuries, it is best to await medical personnel.
Always accept medical care at the scene, even if you don’t think you are injured. Some injuries may not be apparent immediately following an accident. Adrenaline is a pain suppressant and may keep you from feeling the effects immediately.
When you discuss the accident with your insurance company, try not to offer any opinions on the cause. Do not claim responsibility. An initial call to inform your insurer of the accident is a courtesy. They can discover the details later. When you have a personal injury lawyer, they will handle all communications with your insurance company and the defendant.
