Brevard County Truck Accident Lawyer

Injured in a Truck Accident?

While all drivers are bound by a duty of care and a responsibility to take reasonable precaution to avoid causing car accidents, commercial truck drivers are held to even higher standards due to the fact that their vehicles are capable of causing such devastating damage. Semi-trucks can legally weigh up to forty times more than a passenger vehicle, and can easily cause catastrophic injuries or death in a collision.

Examples of the standards which truckers must uphold include the federal Hours of Service regulations which restrict the number of hours the driver may continuously stay on the road before stopping to rest, and the lower threshold for an arrest for driving under the influence-.04% blood alcohol content as compared to .08% for normal drivers.

We will investigate the circumstances of your crash to find evidence to prove that the trucker is at fault, such as through reckless driving which led to a rear-end or under ride accident, or for careless handling leading to a jackknife or rollover. Our goal will be to help you recover full compensation for all your medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering, whether you have suffered personal injury or if you are suing for the wrongful death of a loved one
