A Rear-End Truck Collision May Be Another Driver’s Fault
Truck drivers may spend exorbitant periods of time on roads, and there is a possibility that a truck driver who causes a rear-end collision:
- May suffer from certain health conditions, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which may impair their ability to stay alert while driving
- Could have become drowsy, especially if they are towards the end of a long stretch of driving, are driving at night, or did not get adequate sleep before their driving shift
- Was distracted, as distracted driving may impact any motorist who is not vigilant to their own distracting behaviors
- Was under the influence of drugs, which Reuters reports may be a problem within the commercial trucking industry
- Was driving aggressively at the time of your accident
- Engaged in some other behavior, or failed to take certain preventative measures, that increased the risk of harm to yourself or your loved one
A driver who strikes another vehicle in the rear may be generally assumed to be at-fault for the accident unless evidence to the contrary emerges. You may initially turn to insurance to compensate you for your accident-related losses, though this may not always be a viable option.
A Lawsuit May Work When Insurance Does Not
There may be several reasons why insurance is not a feasible way to obtain compensation after your accident. Some possible problems with insurance may include:
- That the driver, or other parties responsible for your accident, do not have adequate insurance as described by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV)
- That insurance coverage does not pay what you need to cover your losses
- That you and one or more insurers cannot come to an agreement about the amount of compensation to which you should be entitled
In the case of any insurance-related issues, you may sue at-fault parties for your Orlando rear-end truck collision. A lawyer may handle your lawsuit from start to finish, fighting for any losses that you sustained as the result of your accident.
