Identifying Liability in Florida Truck Accident Cases
Truck accident cases are typically more complicated than accidents involving
passenger vehicles because of several issues: severity of injuries, cost
of damages, and liability. With truck crashes, liability can fall on multiple
parties, including the driver, trucking company, and their insurers across
state lines. When you have been injured, it is important that you work
with a Jacksonville truck accident lawyer who is well-versed in injury
law and how to effectively handle complex accident cases.
Parties that can be liabile in a truck accident:
Truck driver: If the driver behaved recklessly by speeding, violating hours of service,
driving drunk, texting, or other careless actions, they can be held liable.
Truck company: Trucking companies are required to hire and train qualififed drivers,
perform regular maintenance, and other regulations as stated by the law.
Truck manufacturer: Sometimes, faulty auto parts are responsible for an accident. Common
truck defects can include, faulty brakes, tire blowouts, and other equipment
Cargo loading party: Overloading cargo or improperly securing cargo is a violation of trucking

of accident experts who must assess the mechanics of the crash. At our
law firm, we have access to the resources needed to skillfully investigate,
negotiate, and litigate your claim.
