Truck accidents can be extremely harmful and in some cases even result in death. You are entitled to reparations for the medical expenses you and your loved ones have incurred as a result of your injuries, as well as for pain and suffering. If you or a loved one have been involved in a truck accident, or a loved one has suffered wrongful death as a result of a truck accident, you should seek legal counsel immediately. Winning your case requires a skilled, aggressive Florida Truck Accident Attorney who understands the law and how it applies to truck accidents and your individual case.
Delray Beach Truck Accident Cases
Because of a truck’s size and weight, truck accidents are among the most serious types of motor vehicle accidents that can occur. Often, truck accidents cause significantly more damage and injury than a motor vehicle accident involving passenger cars.
A truck accident involving a car can crush the car, severely injuring or killing the passengers inside. A truck accident involving two trucks can be even more devastating, and the drivers of the trucks rarely escape without injury.
Common injuries that result from truck accidents include:
- Crush injuries
- Deep cuts and lacerations
- Broken and fractured bones
- Limb amputations
- Damage to internal organs
- Spinal cord injuries
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Wrongful death
Truck accidents can be caused by:
- Driver fatigue
- Failure to follow proper safety procedures when driving
- Failure to follow proper safety procedures when securing a load
- Improper truck maintenance
