What Causes Trucking Accidents?
Our Miami truck accident attorneys have been studying personal injury cases for decades to uncover the common causes behind them. In particular, car accidents caused by the negligence of a truck driver seem to usually stem from one thing: violating a federal trucking regulation. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has established several regulations that must be followed by truck drivers and their parent companies at all times in order to help prevent dangerous truck accidents. When just one of these regulations is willingly or inadvertently violated, the result can be catastrophic.
Federal trucking regulations that are frequently violated include:
- How many hours a trucker can work in a day/week.
- How fast a truck may drive on freeways (usually only 55 miles per hour).
- How much tonnage of cargo a truck may carry at once (80,000 pounds).
- What routes a commercial truck may take and during what hours.
If a truck driver is speeding, carrying too much weight, going down a narrow street, or falling asleep at the wheel, they can cause a violent truck accident at any moment. The results are often severe, including paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, or even death.
Determining Liability in Truck Accident Claims
Who can ultimately be responsible for the truck accident that caused you to suffer injury and damages? The answer depends heavily on how it was caused, and it may be more than one person or party. In many cases, the truck driver’s negligence of course puts some liability on them but it can also be traced back to their employer. Schedules that required the trucker to work excessively long shifts, causing them to grow fatigued, may put liability onto their supervisor, and perhaps even their supervisor. At the bottom of it all, you should be fully compensated for your injuries by someone, even if your case goes all the way to the top of the trucking company’s hierarchy.
