Truck Accidents

Many motor vehicle accidents are caused by big trucks, tractor trailers, 18 wheelers and semi-trucks. The laws which govern these types of commercial vehicles are very specific and protect motorists from the negligence of trucking companies and their drivers who may cause serious damage, injury or death. In order to properly protect the rights of injured victims, a law firm must be proficient in commercial motor vehicle law. The Law Office of Steven S. Farbman, P.A., will conduct a thorough investigation into the driver’s history, his experience and qualifications, whether or not the trucking company conducted a background check, and how many hours the driver was behind the wheel before the crash occurred.

More often than not, truck accidents are caused by the fatigue and carelessness of the driver. Many truck drivers work up to 14 - 16 hour shifts which means increased fatigue and lower reaction times. The driver’s inability to stay alert is the cause for many highway accidents. Shipping company’s profits rely on their merchandise reaching their destination as fast as possible. This means that every time the driver stops or slows down, their shipment is delayed. The trucking company’s eagerness for profits and fast delivery, may also be their blatant disregard for the safety of other motorists. Many truck accidents involve aggressive driving, tail-gating, speeding, improper lane changes, losing control, driving with an unsecured load, jackknifing, and rollovers. The commercial motor vehicle laws strictly prohibit careless driving.

These types of accidents require expert analysis and the resources of an experienced, board certified civil trial attorney. The Law Office of Steven S.
