Tractor Trailer Accidents
Knowledgeable Florida accident attorneys successfully recover compensation for clients
Trucking accidents – including tractor trailer accidents – are particularly dangerous due to the size and weight of these large trucks, and often result in serious injuries. The truck accident attorneys at Ged Lawyers, LLP aggressively fight on behalf of accident victims to successfully recover maximum compensation from negligent truckers and trucking companies.
Causes of tractor trailer accidents
More than 2.7 million tractor trailers were registered in the United States in 2016, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, a division of the U.S. Department of Transportation. Governed by both federal and state regulations, the drivers of commercial vehicles are to follow federal regulations for coupling and decoupling of tractor trailers to ensure their safety. Tractor trailer accidents may be the result of driver fatigue, inadequate training of drivers, and driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or medications.
Personal injury law protects those injured in tractor trailer accidents
Personal injury law protects those injured in tractor trailer accidents that are the result of another person or entity’s negligence. Negligence is at the core of all personal injury claims and – in the case of tractor trailer accidents – the claims process can be particularly challenging due to several different factors. In most cases, more than one entity shares the financial responsibility for a tractor trailer accident, such as the owner of the truck, the trailer manufacturer, the company that leased the trailer, and the manufacturer of certain parts of the tractor trailer.
Florida statute of limitations for tractor trailer accidents
The statute of limitations is the legal time frame for filing a claim in the civil court system of the state. While each state has its own time limits, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida is four years from the date the accident took place. If a personal injury claim is not filed within this four-year time frame, the case will be dismissed and the opportunity to recover any compensation for injuries will have been lost.
