Pursuing a monetary award after a trucking accident is likely to prove much more complicated than after a simple motor vehicle accident.
The reasons why have much to do with the potential sheer size of these such accidents and the likelihood that quite a few parties will either bear responsibility for, and have a financial interest in, the event.
When a commercial truck crashes into an edifice -- or collides with another motorist -- the chances that a chain reaction occurs, with injuries to many people and damage to an enormous amount of property, are great.
As such, the need for a qualified and highly seasoned personal injury law firm is critical.
Identifying the negligent parties after a Trucking Accident in Miami or elsewhere in South Florida, be it involving an 18-wheeler, a big rig, an oil tanker, a tractor trailer, or any manner of smaller vehicle, can only be achieved through careful and thorough analysis of all of the facts surrounding your case.
Perhaps the driver was solely to blame, as so often is the case. Improper and reckless turning, breaking, lane-changing, and acceleration have all been to known to cause horrible truck accidents.
There could have been maintenance issues or problems that caused a mechanical breakdown. Other equipment under the hood could have been flawed or damaged. The list of possibilities is long and requires the savvy of a skilled personal injury law firm for thorough examination.
No matter how or why a truck accident takes place, the truck driver never is the one most critically injured. It's always the driver of the other car, motorcycle, or SUV.
